Weekly Newsletter #61: Reimagining the Future With Black Leadership

Reimagining the Future With
Black Leadership

 

 Hey BYP Network, 

This week, we've been thinking about the future of the world of business and what that will look like. Following last week's event in collaboration with Accenture, we've been thinking about 'Reimagining the Future with Black Leadership'. From diversity and inclusion, to representation and progression, we're hopeful about how our network and our members will change the shape of the workforce of the future.

 

Change must start now. We've been in rooms full of people and yet, no black senior leaders were present. These experiences have prompted us as a network to create our Senior Leadership Conference. In less than three months, we'll be welcoming over 500 black professionals to the main stage where 4 senior black leaders will talk about what reimagining the future with black leadership will look like.

 

Do you want to be a part of it?

 

Learn leadership skills from senior leaders and innovative companies that are creating impact and making waves by securing your attendance to our conference now.

  

Sponsors include Bloomberg, Accenture, The Guardian, PwC, Lloyds and Soho House, with more to be announced.


Speakers include Andrew Pearce (Managing Director of Accenture), David Villa Clarke (Managing Director of Aleto Foundation), Renee Hunt (Director of Group Platforms at Sky) and Pamela Hutchinson (Global Head of D&I of Bloomberg).
