BAME Outreach Weekend

Do you self-identify as being from a Black, Asian, or other ethnic minority background? Do you have what it takes to be a political leader of the future? Do you think young people should be more engaged and involved in the political life? Do you want to gain insight into politics? 

The Diversity Team at the Liberal Democrats invite you to apply to an exciting weekend to develop professional skills and engage with senior Liberal Democrats, including MPs, councillors and Parliamentary candidates. Throughout the weekend, you will receive training on key skills to help you further your career in politics, meet like-minded individuals and network. This free event will take place at the Liberal Democrats Headquarters in Westminster on 7th and 8th March 2015 and lunch and travel expenses will be covered on both days.

Requirements: This event is open to 18-25 year olds who self-identify as being from a Black, Asian, or other ethnic minority background. No previous experience in politics is required although any community or campaigning work will be a distinct advantage. You should have sympathy with the broad values of the Liberal Democrats, but being a member of the Liberal Democrats is not a requirement. 

You can download the application form here. Please also return the application form with our Diversity Monitoring form which you can download here. Please fill in both forms and return them by Monday 2nd February to diversity@libdems.org.uk. Successful applicants will be notified by Monday 9th February. 

If you have any questions please contact the diversity team at diversity@libdems.org.uk.

Thanks very much and we look forward to receiving your applications!
