Tony Danker, director-general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) was dismissed with immediate effect last week after an investigation into complaints about his conduct in the workplace. According to CBI’s website Tony Danker is no longer holding his position on the six-person advisory panel of Business in the Community (BITC).
Tony Danker had an unpaid role at Business in the Community (BITC) where he acted as a sounding board for the CEO regarding the development of a skilled workforce and campaigning for racial equality in the workplace. BITC is one of the Prince's Charities of King Charles, with which it has been associated for over 40 years. Danker took over the position on BITC's advisory committee that was previously held by the former CBI chief Carolyn Fairbairn. However, Danker's dismissal from CBI led to his automatic removal from BITC's panel, as the CBI's position on the group is historic and linked to the organization and not any individual. The move was deemed necessary, according to Mary Macleod, the chief executive of BITC.
