Our Unity Programme
United in our mission

Every voice is heard
Africa & The British Empire
In collaboration with Multiculture@Sky and Parents@Sky employee networks, this Unity Programme event focussed on Black representation in children’s literature and children’s education.
Hosted by Maria Palmer-Clarke from the Multiculture@Sky network, and Laura Butcher from the Parents@Sky network, they discussed what issues they see at the moment, and what they feel needs to change.
Spotlight on Assimilation
This Unity event defined assimilation and provided an understanding of the general impact it has, the impact it can have on the entry and progression of Black colleagues within the workplace and within the legal profession, whilst hearing Afua Hirsch’s personal story.
Hosted by Ama Acheampong-Mensah and Priya Sahathevan, this session also looked to the future and focussed on how Sky can promote cultural change, encourage belonging, and create a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
“Our logo provides the energy and intention behind Unity. It’s one of the Adinkra symbols with the meaning of
‘Change your character’.
The star in the middle is reflective of a new start and the wheel around is a symbol of self-determination – towards a better version of self and the world.
We know that we all have to change to get to a better place where we can just be.”
