John Michael, CEO, iStorage Limited, has today been announced as one of the top 100 most influential Black, Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders in the UK tech sector. The list, produced by board appointments firm Inclusive Boards, will be released today at the House of Commons as part of the official launch of the Inclusive Tech Alliance.

The Alliance has been set up in response to new research by Inclusive Boards that will show the sector is significantly lagging others on diversity within senior leadership.

The founder of the Inclusive Tech Alliance (ITA), Samuel Kasumu, who is also a member of the Prime Minister's Race Disparity Advisory Board said:

“Technology is increasingly playing an important role in driving our economy and there is a great need to ensure that everyone can fully participate in the jobs and opportunities technology brings. John Michael and others featured in this list today are role models that will inspire the next generation, and hopefully help to improve diversity within the sector.”

Says John Michael:

“I am honoured and privileged to be recognised as a Top 100 BAME leader in Tech – I remember starting the business from my garden shed…fast forward to today, where I developed a ground-breaking range of industry leading products, consisting of USB flash, hard disk and solid-state drives in capacities up to 14TB, which to this day is designed and developed in the UK, but more importantly offers something unique to everyone. My advice is to follow your dream, work hard and don’t hold back – technology is vital in today’s modern society so put your ideas down and make them happen!”

Those featured in the top 100 include senior leaders from Facebook, LinkedIn, IBM, Twitter and financial services firm EY. Judges include Tim Sawyer CBE (COO, Innovate UK), Sandra Kerr OBE (Race Equality Director, Business in the Community), and Catherine Muirden (Director of HR, Co-Op Foods).

Notes:

Inclusive Boards are the UK's leading board appointments firm, specialising in attracting high level diverse talent through a network of over 60,000 professionals. They operate across sectors including sport, to charities and social investment. Inclusive Boards’ cutting-edge research has featured in the Independent, Guardian, Daily Mail and more.

The Inclusive Tech Alliance is a new membership body dedicated to increasing diversity in the UK Tech Sector. Members include Global IT solutions firm Larsen & Toubro Infotech and owners of Candy Crush – King. Attendees at the launch will include Ministers, Parliamentarians, as well as senior leaders representing members of the Alliance.
