About the Event

Join us every month at this national virtual ethnic minority-led small business event.

Event details

Join us on the last Thursday of every month to network, share, learn  and discuss the successes and experiences of being an ethnic minority  business owner.

Hosted by Jason Roberts, Founder and CEO of Kaleida International.

Hailing from Brixton, South London, after 24 years working in the  financial services industry in both banking, and sales, Jason was  frequently reminded of his diverse identity. From the lack of  representation in boardrooms, to being made aware that his 6’ 5” frame  was intimidating, he experienced prejudice, bias and discrimination that  impacted opportunities.

In 2021, Jason launched Kaleida International, a fully-inclusive, B2B  marketplace for tenders focused on helping buyers find, assess and  invite diverse suppliers to tender. A father to two daughters, Jason  enjoys golf, long walks and has a passion for yachting.

You will get a chance to:

  • Hear from a variety of speakers during the ‘In Conversation With’ discussions
  • Network and engage with fellow business owners during breakout room sessions.
  • Explore how we can support our community moving forward and drive FSB’s Equality Diversity and Inclusion agenda.

Our 'In Conversation With' guest speaker details will be added shortly.

It doesn’t end there! After the hour you are invited to join us for  an optional extra half an hour for our popular and more relaxed 'water  cooler' session to give you more of a chance for some extra networking  and to get any extra help and support you may need for your business.  This session is entirely optional.

This free FSB virtual event is open to all businesses, and  non-members are welcome to attend, bring a friend, colleague or business  associate to accompany you, so they too can benefit.

Please view our Privacy Notice.

Our events and activities, including those focused on a specific  issue or equality characteristic, are open to all. We encourage shared  learning, wider conversations and a collective responsibility to  inclusivity through allyship, where marginalised groups are supported by  others.
