Sky News | BAME people hold just 4.6% of the UK's most powerful roles, data shows

Just 51 of the top 1,097 workplace roles in the UK are held by black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people, data shared exclusively with Sky News shows.

That amounts to just 4.6%, despite the fact that BAME groups make up 14% of the population.

The figures also show that ethnic minority women are particularly poorly represented, taking up only 10 of the top positions.

The data, compiled by the consultancy and research company Green Park, lists the people in the most senior roles across 39 categories.

They include senior leadership positions across central and local government, public bodies, police and security, the private sector, education, sports and charities
