Business coverage for Bloomsbury author

New research by author and racial equality campaigner Auranjita Kumar has been picked up by the UK media.

Kumar, the Managing Director and Head of HR – Hubs at the Royal Bank of Scotland, conducted an independent study that found that black and minority ethnic (BAME) employees face routine discrimination by an “institutionally racist old boys network” that runs some of Britain’s largest companies.

Her research also suggests that BAME professionals are more than 90 per cent less likely to land a boardroom job than white applicants.

The findings were revealed for the first time this week at the launch of Kumar’s new book, Colour Matters? The Truth That No One Wants To See, which is published by Bloomsbury India.

The study has been covered by BBC Online’s Business Live, business title DiversityQ and national newspaper Metro’s Business Bites, among others.

The exposure follows an interview that Anuranjita, a client of book PR agency Palamedes PR, gave to BBC Radio 5 Live’s Wake Up To Money programme. You can currently listen to the interview on the BBC Sounds website.
