Stonewall Young Leaders, 2 – 4 September, Central London
If you are aged 18 to 24, thinking about your future and wondering how your sexual orientation or gender identity relates to the workplace and your career aspirations, the Stonewall Young Leaders Programme could be for you.

Held over two days with a reunion event six weeks later, the programme will inspire you to think about your impact on others as young lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans leaders and role models. Led by Stonewall facilitators, the programme creates a safe space for you to explore what it means to be LGBT in the workplace while giving you the space to reflect on your values and expectations of your future.

Frontrunner for Disabled Students, 8 – 10 September, Nottingham
The programme explores leadership by taking you behind the scenes of a city to visit an incredible range of organisations and their leaders across different sectors (many of whom will be potential employers).
You will find out how the city works, explore local issues, how leaders are tackling them and the value of diversity in the workplace. Our long-standing relationships with these organisations ensure your experience is authentic; and the networks that you form will be long lasting and directly beneficial
to your transition into work after university.
