So so pleased to confirm in 2020 we’ll be launching The Blueprint: a new series of initiatives including: . - The Xec: A leadership scheme for #PR
pros from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds. Coming in spring 2020. . - #CareerHack
: A career event for 18-25 year olds from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds interested in getting into PR and comms (spoiler alert: no degree necessary). Coming in autumn 2020. . - The Blueprint* kite mark: Separating those that offer equality of opportunity, value diverse talent and invest in it from those that don’t. Coming in winter 2020. .
“The Blueprint is about widening the sector’s talent pool, tackling the sector’s #diversity
and talent problem and not just attracting and attaining talent from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds but ensuring they have the opportunity to climb to the top of their chosen career ladders.... The Blueprint isn’t a diversity initiative for the talkers or the patient. It’s for doers and the impatient, ready and willing to create change”, @bme.pr.pros
founder Elizabeth Bananuka. .
