Be Inclusive Hospitality CIC is a not-for-profit organisation. Founded by Lorraine Copes in November 2019 and incorporated in July 2020, the goal is to advance racial equity in Hospitality, Food & Drink.
Lorraine is an award-winning social entrepreneur, hospitality consultant and coach, and has worked as a senior executive, with 20 years experience working for brands including Shake Shack, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants and Corbin & King.
Throughout her career, the absence of People of Colour in positions of influence or generally visible throughout the sector has been a consistent problem. Lorraine’s goal is to change the narrative and remove the barriers to progress for those affected.
Be Inclusive Hospitality is a community of People of Colour and ally companies and individuals who are keen to accelerate race equity throughout the sector.
