The #150Leaders

60 students are participating in the programme in 2017 and a further 90 students will be recruited for 2018. Brought together they form our #150Leaders. The programme in 2017 started with a welcome event in Birmingham followed by online networking through social media and an online community of practice. A personalised mentorship scheme over a period of three months was co-created with the students and the programme concludes with a final networking event in London at the end of November.
