Michelle Lam joins Borough Market’s Board of Trustees

The Trustees of Borough Market have announced the appointment of Michelle Lam to the Board of Trustees. Lam is the first woman of colour to join the board, and is a qualified finance professional at Peabody Housing, with over 15 years’ experience working in the social housing and education sectors. She will work with the Board of Trustees, staff and traders to shape and oversee the future direction of the Market. Lam’s new role with Borough Market has come about following the Market’s participation in a bespoke pilot programme, Black on Board, with Southwark Council and social enterprise, Olmec. The pilot was developed to address the lack of racial and ethnic diversity on arts boards in the borough and to meet the needs of aspiring trustees from under-represented communities. Members of the Board of Trustees and Senior Management team signed up to a series of sessions over a period of six months, as part of the Black on Board programme, to explore opportunities to understand and improve representation of people of colour at board level.
