Finsbury Partner Dorothy Burwell was named in EMpower’s Ethnic Minority Executives list, in association with Yahoo Finance. The 100 Ethnic Minority Executives category recognises 100 senior role models who are leading by example and removing barriers on the pathway to success for ethnic minority employees.
