The Taylor Bennett Foundation is delighted to announce the support of two new agencies, Chameleon and Racepoint Global.

Chameleon ran five marathons in five days and raised over £1,000 for the Foundation; Racepoint Global donated over £2,500 and the Foundation is hugely grateful to both agencies for recognising the need for increased diversity in the PR and Communications industry and for putting their hands in their pockets to support our work.

"At Chameleon, we believe in action over words when it comes to diversity and inclusion. The events of this year can make the race-related issues we face in our industry, and the wider world, seem insurmountable. However, we believe that small steps can have a positive ripple effect which is why we wanted to fundraise for the Taylor Bennett Foundation, whose mission we wholeheartedly support. We encourage others to do the same; it’s an easy way to support an organisation that has a critical role to play in our industry's future.”
Jasmin Athwal, Director & Diversity and Inclusion Lead, Chameleon

"We are very aware of the lack of diversity within our own industry and we must be part of the solution. Future communications leaders will come from all corners and we will gain from embracing a diversified untapped pool of talent. Racepoint Global is fully committed to supporting mission-based organisations such as the Taylor Bennett Foundation to ensure we nurture and support an inclusive and diverse workplace.”
Bob Osmond, President, Racepoint Global

Melissa Lawrence, Chief Executive of the foundation said:

“We are hugely grateful to our friends at Chameleon and Racepoint Global, who at this time of uncertainty recognise the vital importance of the work of the Taylor Bennett Foundation and are able to support us with these donations.  The Foundation has a very successful track record, but there is so much more to do and these donations will enable us to support more BAME young people into careers in the PR and Communications industry.”

Anyone looking to support the Foundation can find out more by contacting Melissa Lawrence or our chair of trustees Sarah Pinch.
