Migrant Leaders partners with the NSPCC to co-develop and deliver expert safeguarding training to Migrant Leaders mentors.
Our Migrant Leaders quarterly Mentors Webinars are aimed at increasing our engagement with mentors, providing an opportunity to hear interesting speakers on topics that inform our aims and objectives and last, but not least, enabling our mentors to network, share their experiences and learn from each other. Our webinars are delivered online, via Zoom, and this quarter we are pleased to have delivered parts 1 and 2 of our Safeguarding Briefing, in partnership with the NSPCC. This webinar provides further training on and helps embed our Migrant Leaders Safeguarding Policy which can be found on our website Digital Zone: https://lnkd.in/gtF5J4H
The first Migrant Leaders Quarterly Mentors Webinar was delivered during Black History Month, Professor Mary Bosworth spoke about representation in collaboration with University of Oxford.
Kathryn Grice, a member of the Migrant Leaders Executive Team expressed “It's hard not to put your teacher hat on when listening to these presentations and put ex pupils' faces to the statistics mentioned. The presentation explored the under representation of practitioners - such as judges, barristers, police officers - in the criminal justice system from global majority citizens; coupled with the overrepresentation of them within the justice system - in arrests, custody, prisons etc. There is significant work to be done and as we know, education plays a huge part in change.”
Migrant Leaders delivered this Education Conference for the 4th year to support students with access to top universities . This webinar included expert training with Varsity Scholars founder Kate Kettle to support university applications. In collaboration with Granger Reis topics covered included How to Hack Job Applications and How to Make Social Media Work for Your Career.

We look forward to Migrant Leaders Founder & CEO Elham Fardad speaking at the University of Warwick Change Maker Series on the topic of collaboration across sectors. Elham Fardad, herself an alumni of the Warwick Executive MBA which she completed in 2003, says:
“I am elated to be a regular guest speaker at Warwick University and to share my experience and insights which I hope will influence their audiences at their various student, alumni and other events. It is truly fulfilling to serve the university who gave me the chance all those years ago to join their Executive MBA at such a young age which enabled me to benefit from the vast experience of that cohort. I started my MBA around the time that I joined GE as a Financial Controller in 1999. I was acutely aware of how young I was for that GE role and I sensed that my key success factor was to be my commercial and operational contributions to the wider GE business. The Warwick MBA gave me a framework for that and...
We are delighted to announce that the Migrant Leaders partnership with Smith & Nephew is continuing for a second year bringing insights, exposure and experiences to our deserving young mentees. Thank you everyone at Smith & Nephew.
Our next project delivered on 13th July, was a deep dive into STEM careers through a multi-workstream digital workshop for our mentees.
