Take charge of the change

EPOC is a movement of senior executives and leaders from a multitude of cultural backgrounds, joined by a singular goal: adding greater diversity to Boards across the UK. We do this by facilitating and empowering our members in building meaningful, mutually beneficial working relationships with Chairs and SIDs (Senior Independent Directors) of major national organisations across a variety of industries. 

There are no joining fees, ever. All we ask for is your commitment to the endeavour.

Becoming an Epoc Member

While our organisation is inclusive of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, Membership is exclusive to high-level executive talent who identify as a person of colour.

We have two tiers of membership: Members and Premium Members. There is no joining fee for either tier, or to attend any of our events. Membership at both tiers entitles you to access to the strength and support of the network, as well as invitations to our events and professional development programs.

Members of EPOC are afforded the following benefits: 

Invitation to both online and in-person EPOC events; The ability to sign up for our Board Fellowship Program, and our CV Writing Programs, facilitated by supporter organisations; Receipt of our regular NED role mailouts; Personalised introductions for roles on request; Access to the support and expertise of other EPOC Members, and the potential for informal mentorship through those relationships.

Additional features of Premium Membership

In addition to all of these benefits, Premium Members are Members who pledge to take a more active role in EPOC, and in return receive preferential invitation to smaller events, and access to additional professional networks. These include the FT NED Club, and 1 year's free membership of The Deloitte Academy. To apply to become a Premium Member, you will need to be an existing Member, and attend  EPOC events in order to network with existing Premium Members. Once you have become established, you then need to be nominated by two Premium Members.

By committing to getting to know Members on a personal level, we can ensure assurance around suitability and sponsor you for roles based on your expertise, experience, character and values. 

Together, we can go from being overlooked to being seen — bridging the divide between those who have the non-executive opportunities and the executives of colour who seek them.
