Being Black and British in white majority spaces in the working world entails a myriad of challenges. While the world endeavours to become more inclusive, and businesses strive to eradicate discrimination in the workplace, there are still societal stereotypes that can hinder the progression of Black professionals.

Twice As Hard is an exploration of Black identity in the workplace as well as a blueprint for success, written by entrepreneurial husband and wife team Raphael and Opeyemi Sofoluke - featuring contributions from industry leaders including Mathew Knowles, Trevor Nelson MBE, Bianca Miller-Cole, Charlene White and Munya Chawawa.

Their debut book exposes the obstacles that limit opportunity for Black professional progress, how to challenge racial stereotypes, be productive, find purpose and ultimately design a successful career.
