Barrister starts scholarship to 'shine light' on BAME talent

SCHOLARSHIP: Miranda Brawn

A BARRISTER has launched a scholarship to “shine a spotlight on BAME talent” and help young people from minority ethnic backgrounds become the next generation of business leaders.

Miranda Brawn, from Wanstead in east London, has teamed up with the Black Cultural Archives (BCA) to create the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Scholarship, which aims to help tackle the ongoing diversity gap in the corporate sector.

The scholarship, open to young people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds between 14-21 years old and in full time education, will include up to £1,000 funding, one-to-one mentoring sessions with Miranda, CV clinics, and work experience opportunities.

Brown, who is also an investment banker, told the Waltham Forest Guardian: “I am from east London, and although I was lucky enough to have the right guidance to lead my through the early stages of my career, I know there are many young people from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds who lack that key support.

“This scholarship will shine a spotlight on the BAME talent pipeline among the next generation.”
