About Us

Be Inclusive Hospitality CIC is a social enterprise and not-for-profit organisation. Founded by Lorraine Copes and incorporated in July 2020, the goal is to advance racial equity in Hospitality, Food & Drink.

Be Inclusive Hospitality was founded due to the consistent lack of representation of people of colour in positions of influence, and the supply chain.

The social enterprise now holds the prime position of igniting the much-needed conversations, and delivering initiatives to advance change within hospitality, food, and drink sectors.

Be Inclusive Hospitality is a community of individuals and companies who are keen to collaborate to accelerate race equity throughout the sector.

Our Vision

Is to create a Hospitality sector that is Equitable and Inclusive for Black, Asian and Ethnic Minorities at all levelsĀ 

Our Values

Our Goal

To support the upward social mobility of 10,000 employees and 2,000 business owners from our community by 2026.
