    GS Power Series: Black History Month Special

    About the event

    This black history month, Generation Success is proud to welcome a panel of leading BME business leaders who will be sharing their career journey and secrets to their success with the Generation Success network.

     

    In an ideal world, the month would not be necessary, because educational establishments and the national curriculum would fully recognise and appreciate the contribution of black people throughout history. Sadly, that is not the case. 

    Black History month is an opportunity to share with the world vast contributions from BME leaders. It’s a time to demonstrate pride in the BME community’s creativity, respect for its intellectual prowess and a celebration of its cultural identity which is far too often misrepresented, when it is not being ignored, in the mainstream. 

    This is an opportunity to hear from a panel of leading BME business figures and discover their secrets to success. If you were ever put off going after your dream job, senior position or starting your own business, please think again.This event is about breaking all those barriers and providing you with guidance.

     

    What you will gain:

    • Be inspired by the accomplishments by today’s leading BME business leaders
    • Build connections
    • Gain guidance to exceed your aspirations

    There will also be a chance to WIN a free hour mentoring session with one of our mentors as a raffle prize.

    Career City Conference

    The Event

    Career City Conference Meets Breaking Barriers 2019 is a one day conference designed to bridge the career aspiration gap between high performing students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and companies looking for diverse talent.  

    The day will feature workshops and talks held by the UK’s most senior leaders. There will be an employer zone for attendees to meet employers and hear about opportunities that they have available.
