Can you tell us about the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation and its aims?

It was founded to help increase racial diversity within the UK workforce. It is focused on promising 14 to 21-year-olds, from a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background who are also passionate about diversity. The Foundation delivers diversity leadership lectures and gives annual scholarships to potential young leaders to help them succeed. The goal of the scholarship is to support and engage BAME students by providing funding, mentoring and work experience, help them develop leadership skills, and transform themselves and their communities.
