DATE: 10/05/2023
TIME: 10:00am to 11:30am

TOPICS: Inclusion

Join us in conversation with Autotrader, our sponsor who has supported Black Inclusion Week since the beginning. They will share insights, learnings and great practice following the Experience day they held for Black year 9 students as part of Black Inclusion Week. They will share their approach, their learnings and most importantly how all leaders can implement this in their own organisations.

We will also hear from award-winning top 50 UK law firm Browne Jacobson as they share their ground-breaking mentoring programme for Black lawyers.

Leading global executive search and leadership talent specialist Leathwaite will share their success in supporting then recruiting interns through the 10,000 Black interns programme. Hear from one of the interns directly about the experience, why it is important for Black talent and what organisations can do to enhance the experiences for the interns, their colleagues, and the organisation itself. Learn what organisations across all industries and of all sizes are actively doing and how you can do the same in your organisation now.

Speakers for this groundbreaking event are:

• Bernadette Thompson OBE, Associate Director of Inclusion, NHS Barts Health

•Bridget Tatham, Partner & Co-Chair, Browne Jacobson LLP

•Sarah Brooks Pearce, Future Talent Manager and Disability & Neurodiversity Network Lead, Auto Trader

•Nnaemeka Obiozor, Research Associate, Leathwaite

This event will be packed with advice, tangible actions, learnt experience and great practice for developing our future Black leaders and professionals, building a strong pipeline and opening up opportunities for our Black youth.

You will leave this event empowered to take action and with practical examples of activities your organisation can engage in now to intentionally take action to improve Black inclusion now and in the future.
