Black People in Digital Sector

There is under-representation* of black people in the digital sector in Scotland (and globally).

Access to digital opportunities can remove barriers and give black people better choices in work, business, education, health, and social activities.

(*In 2021, there were nearly 1.7 million people working in the digital economy in the United Kingdom. Out of these, approx. 48,000 were of Black origin and Asian 179,000.)
