Marcus-Alexander is the Chairperson of Shell’s Black employee network in the UK. He is also a member of Shell’s Global Employee Advisory Board (EAB), which supports Shell’s D&I Council for Race. The Council takes steps to improve the inclusion and experience of Black employees and other under-represented racial and ethnic groups. The EAB supports the Council by acting as a sounding board, influencing, and testing strategy, advocating throughout the organization, and delivering complementary programmes which support the Council’s aims. Marcus was instrumental in developing Shell UK’s 2020 10-point action plan. The plan introduced recruitment aspirations of 8% representation of Black people in our graduate and experienced hires by 2025. Marcus also embedded changes to recruitment processes, reverse mentoring, enhanced employee mandatory inclusion training and other initiatives in pursuit of fairer representation. Marcus helped shape and deliver the plan and became a trusted advisor to VP UKHR and Country Chair of Shell UK.
