Harry Matovu QC has been recognised for a second year in the Powerlist 2022, the authoritative annual publication of Britain’s 100 most influential people of Black heritage in the UK. The Powerlist honours the most inspirational men and women across a range of sectors, including business, the media, sport, science and technology, and the arts. The list is selected by an independent judging panel, and it comprises people who have "the ability to positively alter events and change lives as demonstrated over a reasonable period of time".
This year’s Powerlist, led by Jacky Wright, Chief Digital Officer of Microsoft, and Marcus Rashford, England footballer and campaigner against food poverty, was announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on 15 October 2021 sponsored by JP Morgan, PwC, Facebook, the London Stock Exchange, The Executive Leadership Council, Mastercard and MDC Group.
Harry Matovu is recognised as one of the most influential Black individuals in the Politics, Law and Religion section for his work as the founder and principal of the Charter for Black Talent in Finance and the Professions. The Charter challenges the under-representation and inequality of treatment of talented Black professionals across the financial and professional services sectors, and it aims to dismantle ingrained perceptions and assumptions about Black talent in business and the professions.
Brick Court Chambers is a proud supporter of the Charter for Black Talent.
