Richard Hastings

Co-Chair


Richard has over 35 years implementing and supporting ICT systems in recruitment advertising, fashion retail, software houses, futures markets, national & international shipping, local government and healthcare. Coming from a Caribbean background, he is proud to help lead an organisation that understands the challenges and the lack of opportunities people of colour face within the UK, and the disproportionate and detrimental effect the coronavirus pandemic has had on ethnic minorities. He is keen to redress this imbalance by providing ICT solutions for those who cannot afford their own technology at home, and training and experience for disadvantaged young people in IT and the non-profit sector. He is a father of 5.
