Leading BAME figures from across the country are this week embarking on the Pathway to Success Leadership and Development programme pilot, a ground-breaking new initiative working to equip BAME individuals with the tools and knowledge required to stand for political office alongside other leading figures from across the UK. Participants have been selected based on their proven leadership skills and will undertake a week of intensive coaching to build their confidence and familiarity with political settings.
Participants are visiting Parliament today (Tuesday 10 September) to learn more about Parliament, what it’s like to be an MP and how to become a political candidate. They will hear from Speaker John Bercow, Members of Parliament, House of Commons staff, take part in group activities and take part in a bespoke tour of Parliament.
The programme aims to send out the message that diverse leadership is essential in politics and civil society, while creating a thriving parliamentary democracy.
Participants are staying in Magdalen College, Oxford from Monday 9 September. The Blavatnik School of Government has developed a comprehensive programme to build an in-depth understanding of major political, civic and business ideas through discussion, group activities and input sessions throughout the week.
