You Owe It To Yourself
+ New Podcast, New Jobs & Events
Hey BYP Network,
We hope you've been having a great week. Today, we're excited to announce we have another podcast episode for you. In this episode of Why Not Lead?, Kike Oniwinde (Founder & CEO of BYP Network) and Regina Oladipo (Head of EU Exit Digital Delivery & Strategy for the UK Government) explore the realities of Brexit in the black community, chasing work opportunities & opening up an international network of your own.
Kike met Regina at a Google event and they hit it off after talking about wanting to get more women into tech. Regina not only created the role she currently works as, she also mentors people who want to get into the civil service.
In this frank and honest podcast episode, Regina talks about the lack of BAME applicants in the civil service job market and why YOU should be applying, the importance of reaching out to departments and recruiters in the areas you are looking to enter, a day in the life of a civil servant and much more, from being a minority at university to working for a humanitarian aid agency in China. It's inspiring stuff and Regina is definitely one to watch.
You can listen on iTunes, Soundcloud, Buzzsprout & Spotify.
We'll leave you with Regina's wise words:
"The leaders of today are based on the world 20/30 years ago, so it's exciting to imagine what the world will look like in 20 years' time."
We are the future!
