Hello Paulette,

I receive your hand of friendship with xcitement, and I look forward to life-enriching moments and interactions. I reckon I'm raised to 'raise a people of purpose and power.' I have a keen interest in Theology and philosophy ...other disiplines just don't satisfy. Have gone through your profile and can see we certainly have quite a lot in common and a lot to share. I hope to update my profile soon and also upload photos. I'm working on setting up a charity - my life's project- in Sierra Leone now. More on that later. Meantime,thank you for choosing me.

Celestine

Thanks for the welcome.
The residential drug treatment service will open this year and I will keep all colleagues up do date with the progress. It is great to be part of like-minded people and I look forward to developing a healthy relationship.
Take care and best wishes in all you do.

I Paulette, Thank you for accepting my membership. There are a few things that I am involved with at the moment, that I didn't state on the form. I am a Gospel/Soul artist and I also teach vocals. I am involved in a local Bible school for children and also a local nursury.
I have Led Choirs both for colleges and schools. I am now on my third album. The first album, 'My God Mon Ami', was nominated for an award and that has opened the doors for me to work with some of Britain's top musicians. I am now working on a video project with Roger Eaton, who is a top film maker and fashion photographers. I look forward to networking with you.
God bless
Owen Deacon.

#Ethnicity Pay Gap... Where Are We Now

Posted by Dianne Greyson on November 29, 2018 at 15:31 0 Comments

In April 2018 I wrote an article about the Ethnicity Pay Gap. I wrote the article to raise awareness about the issue. It received great response and it made me realise more needed to be done.

Whenever possible I shared my views on the subject using the hashtag that I created #EthnicityPayGap and asked others to follow suit to raise the profile. As I continued talking and writing about the topic I began to realise months had passed and not much had changed, that is when I hit upon a…
