Let's Achieve Together

Title of the block

  • Do You Want to Become a Board Member?
  • Develop Leadership Skills?
  • Progress Your Career?

Black on Board (BoB) is a training programme to improve the racial diversity on governing boards of organisations in all sectors across the UK. The programme covers the key areas you need to become a board member. We have widened the remit of BoB to addressing the career progression of black and minoritised communities to breaking the glass ceiling documented in the Macgregor Smith report. We cover all sectors, and all legal forms and start from what our delegates want.

Our trainers are all experienced board members and changemakers including Patrick Vernon OBE, Lara Oyedele, Martha Cuffy, Sam Obeng-Doyki, Clementine Femiola and CEO John Mayford.

“It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that Black on Board has changed me as a person. I don’t allow my fear to hold me back in my life anymore, and I’m excited about what lies ahead for me now.”
