Alburey, who is also LACE Partners’ co-founder, added, “The DE&I agenda may have been an important top of conversation in many businesses for many years now, but what we are seeing now is more and more organisations taking action and looking to be held accountable... Therefore it was a natural fit for us to work with The Clear Company and I’m excited to see what this partnership could bring.”
