Mentoring Only Scholarship Winner 2020/21

The mentoring session with Miranda was very insightful.
She gave pragmatic advice about how to improve my CV based on her expertise, as well as practical steps to prepare for the working world after university. I am thankful that Miranda took the time to analyse my CV in-depth, alongside encouraging me throughout the session. I now feel more confident to excel as a student outside of the university setting.

To have such direct, one-to-one direct access to someone with such incredible expertise, a stunning repertoire and a stellar track record for success is an honour and a privilege for which I will ever be grateful. To anyone thinking of applying, this is a priceless opportunity.

Danial Naqvi,
Scholarship Winner

I was fortunate enough to win the Multi-Sector award in 2018, and since feel part of a truly inspiring and loving family. I've spoken at the Foundation award ceremony, and project managed the summer party at Speaker's House in UK Parliament. My work experience was with Lambeth Council and my mentor gave me great support.

The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation has been a blessing. As a scholar, I’ve been able to attend the inaugural Diversity Leadership Lecture, [and used the funding awarded] to buy books for my degree and, above all, I’ve benefitted from the wonderful mentoring. Read more.

The mentoring programme has been an invaluable source of knowledge and encouragement to me. It had such a huge impact on boosting my self-confidence as well as helping me to make stronger job applications. I have benefitted far more than I could have hoped for from mentoring.

Trainee Accountant

The mentoring programme helped me get a job offer within 3 weeks after several months of rejection. This mentoring is a must for anyone who needs help with their career goals.

Personal Assistant

The mentoring programme has given me the tools and the confidence that I needed. I highly recommend a session if you want to take or regain control of your career!

The Scholarship provides vital mentoring, work experience and funding to assist our future leaders, whilst the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Lectures provides an opportunity for the next generation to be more informed about diversity and play their part in closing the diversity gap.

Matthew Ryder QC, Former Deputy Mayor For Social Integration, Social Mobility And Community Engagement

Achieving more diversity amongst London’s workforce at all levels and across all sectors is one of the top priorities of both myself and the Mayor. The lecture at which the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Scholarships will be awarded is a valuable contribution towards highlighting the importance of diversity - including, in particular, race diversity - within the UK workforce.
