First up is Charityworks who have two upcoming events. The first is an online session to Meet the  trainees currently on their graduate scheme which takes place on Thursday 26th January at 6pm . Students can register to attend via the following link: http://www.charity-works.co.uk/live/

Then BAME Leaders in the Social Sector: Panel and Q&A . Misconceptions and cultural barriers can often stand in the way of enabling top talent from a BAME background from entering the social sector. On 31st January that’s going to be challenged with an expert panel of BAME leaders in the sector talking to students and society members about entering the sector, and the professional roles and opportunities available to them. If you can’t attend it will be broadcast live over YouTube and they will be taking questions for the panel remotely – so all students, irrespective of location, and indeed cultural background, can get involved.

For panelist info, tickets, as well as online sign-ups visit www.charity-works.co.uk/events
