Throughout October, MI5 will again be marking Black History Month with a series of internal events in honour of Britain's African and Caribbean communities.
The programme of staff events has been co-ordinated by My5, our BAME network which is part of a family of diversity networks at MI5. The role of My5 is to ensure an equal playing field for MI5 staff regardless of background, race, colour, culture or beliefs.
We have previously published a thought-provoking blog from one of our BAME members of staff about what it's like to work at MI5. You can read it here.
