Keisha Marshall has joined the Forum that provides strategic advice to the Regional Development Agency Advantage West Midlands and other partners.
She will provide a voice for a group called Ethnic and European Enterprise that works with people from the Polish, Czech, Slovak, Lithuanian, and Bosnian and Somali communities.
“One of the great strengths of the West Midlands is the region’s rich ethnic and cultural diversity which can contribute so much to our economic prosperity,” said Keisha, who has experience of training and outreach work.
She is currently employed as a development coach and tutor with the Pertemps People Development Group who specialise in helping people who have been long term unemployed back into work.
Mohammad Nazir, who was re-elected as Chair of the West Midlands Minority Ethnic Business Forum in January welcomed Keisha to the group.
“It is essential that we represent as broad a cross section of the minority ethnic community and I am sure that Keisha will make a valuable contribution to our work,” said Mohammad Nazir.
