These days everyone is a life coach. Simply attend a networking event and an endless stream of former something-or-others stand ready to help you find your authentic self, chase your passion, or strike balance in a lopsided world. Hire the right one for the right reasons and over time, you will make progress. You might even capture that ever-elusive ROI. Make a misstep however, and you will simply spin your wheels chasing an ill-defined ideal with a well-intentioned stranger.

So what should you do if you are short on time, patience, or financial wherewithal? What if you are focused on a specific goal and the thought of a broad-based, soul-stirring conversation leaves you motion sick?

Dr Miranda K. Brawn Esq gives opening keynote address on “The Rise of Women within Technology and ESG in Pakistan” to Pakistan’s First Female University “Jinnah University for Women” (JUW) to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 on 6th March in Karachi helping to close the gender gap globally!

Press Release for 1st March 2021: Founder and President of Foundation launches first “Black Women on Boards” Scholarship and Reverse Mentoring Programme to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021

On 1st March 2021, to help to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2021, The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation will launch a “Black Women on Boards” initiative and an innovative reverse mentoring programme with senior leaders.  

The “Black Women on Boards” initiative includes a scholarship for full-time student leaders who are from a Black African and Caribbean heritage including mixed race backgrounds. This is to increase the number of black women in the boardroom and within senior management. Other new diversity leadership scholarships launching for 2021/2022 will include “LGBTQ+” and “Disability”. The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation website has further information and the scholarship application process will open on the first day of International Women’s Month which is on 1st March 2021 via www.tmbdlf.com.  The closing date for applications is 31st July 2021.

This new initiative is due to the lack of black female directors at FTSE350 and Fortune 500 companies. The number of female directors at FTSE-100 firms has increased by 50% in the last five years, and mostly white women now hold more than a third of roles in the boardrooms of Britain’s top 350 companies, according to the Hampton-Alexander review. BoardEx data reveals that only around 3% of female board-level roles are held by women of Black, Asian or minority ethnic heritage in the UK’s 350 largest listed companies. Recent research also highlights that for the first time in six years, there are no Chairs, CEOs or CFO who are Black in the FTSE100. This data shows the scale of the challenge for companies to increase social and racial equity.  

Dr Miranda K. Brawn Esq., Financial Executive, Lawyer, Strategic Board Advisor, Founder and President of The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation said:  

There has been good progress promoting white women to the Boardroom and in senior management positions. However, there is still a lot more work to be done to make sure that we include women from all ethnic backgrounds. This is the rationale for launching the ‘Black Women on Boards’ scholarship.” 

We have also launched an innovative reverse mentoring programme to initially cover business, finance, law and politics. This will compliment our existing mentoring programme by allowing diverse students and our alumni leaders to act as mentors to senior leaders. Mentors will share their perspective and experiences and in so doing inform those making leadership and business decisions to help increase diversity, equity and inclusion. These will be leaders at the top of their profession who are CEO’s of global organisations, judges, managing directors, board directors, Members of Parliament and so on where everyone can learn from each other.”  

For this year’s International Women’s Day, I would like to dare everyone to ‘choose to challenge’ with action not just on the 8th of March, but every single day. With collaborative efforts, we can increase the number of black and mixed-race women in the Boardroom and in senior management leadership roles. We all have a role to play in making a difference and pushing for progress.”

National Inclusion Week via Inclusive Employers takes place from 28th September to 4th October 2020. The week is designed to celebrate everyday inclusion in all its forms! Sharing, promoting and inspiring inclusion practices and culture: together, we will build and develop the inclusion momentum, everyday. The theme for National Inclusion Week 2020 is Each One, Reach One. It is about the opportunity that we all have to connect with someone else, or another organisation, to help them understand the opportunity of inclusion and connect. It is about individuals and organisations connecting and inspiring each other to make inclusion an everyday reality. Together, we will build the biggest inclusion chain ever.

Founder and CEO of the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation, Dr Miranda Brawn Esq said: “I am delighted that our founding supporter Hogan Lovells are sponsoring and hosting our fifth Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture event. This year is extra special because we are five years old and this is in partnership with their National Inclusion Week event. The theme “Each One, Reach One” is in line with my Charity’s ethos “Together we can change the world” hence the perfect fit. This year, my diversity leadership lecture will be focused on inclusion and the Black Lives Matter movement as this was one of the main reasons why my Charity was launched in the first place. We are continuously looking for ways to continue and lead in an innovative way while partnering with other organisations and individuals to help make positive changes.

The annual diversity leadership lecture events are inclusive of all diversity strands such as gender, race, LGBTQ+, disability, religion, faith, social mobility etc. This includes multiple industries and sectors such as finance, business, law, science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, politics, fashion, media, entrepreneurship etc.

The winners of the annual diversity leadership scholarships will also be announced during this event. I am looking forward to finding out who will be our top next generation diversity leaders this year joining the Foundation family.

The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture is the perfect opportunity to (i) educate, empower and inspire our audience on education, career and diversity; (ii) celebrate the outstanding and inspiring achievements of our future diversity leaders; and (iii) raise the awareness of diversity and equality and the importance of action. 

​The lecture has an innovative concept with a strong focus on intersectionality which appeals to its diverse audiences. This consists of next-generation diversity leaders, their parents and current leaders in the workplace who wish to learn more about diversity and how they can make an impact by implementing our key tips in their schools, universities and workplaces. 

​The first Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Lecture made UK history in October 2016 as the first of its kind aimed at school children from a Black, Asian and minority ethnic background aged between 14 to 21 years old and continues to lead as a key annual diversity event in the UK.

Brixton Blog Press Article – 20th July 2020

PRESS RELEASE: “Use Your Voice for Inclusion and Belonging” was the theme for The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture 2019

Dr Miranda Brawn: “Use Your Voice for Inclusion and Belonging!”

Multi-award winning Barrister and Founder of the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation is continuing to empower future leaders and close the diversity gap. She is also a Lambeth Equality Commissioner and an international public speaker sharing how to close the diversity gap at a faster pace across the world.

Each year, the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation awards some of the best diversity leaders of our next generation with a scholarship to assist with their funding, mentoring and work experience within their chosen sector. The event is called the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture where eleven educational diversity leadership scholarships were awarded to our next generation diversity leaders from a diverse backgrounds. This included categories across media, fashion, engineering, law, finance, business, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) etc.  

To date, the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation have helped over 50,000 people and have awarded 40 educational diversity scholarships to date. The foundation’s collaborations and partnerships include The Prince’s Trust, Lambeth Council, The Patchwork Foundation, Cancer Research UK and The Palmer Foundation to help increase diversity in local government, politics and STEAM.

The event, which made UK history in 2016, is the brainchild of the foundation’s founder and CEO Dr Miranda Brawn. Brawn is known as one of the UK’s top diversity, equality and inclusion leaders, helping to close the diversity gap in our workforce and across the globe. She won Woman of the Year at this year’s Women in Finance Awards which is Europe’s largest awards event within the finance industry for her excellent diversity and finance work.

This year’s diversity leadership annual lecture made a powerful case on how to move on from talking about diversity to action by using your most powerful tool – your voice – in order to create true inclusion and belonging in the workplace. The theme was “Use Your Voice for Inclusion and Belonging”.  The event was oversubscribed with a packed room full of students and their parents attending from all of the UK including one student who travelled all the way from Wales.

Brawn said:  “It was important for us to highlight how inclusion and belonging are key right now at this year’s leading Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture helping to educate our attendees. I had explained in the lecture that “belonging” in particular is when your insights and contributions are valued, you feel a sense of belonging in your gut. A sense of belonging means that people can bring their full selves to work, and not feel like they are a different person there than at home. It is no longer enough to simply include people at the table for diversity. Now in 2019, it is imperative to amplify everyone’s voices, clear barriers, create true fairness while appreciating each other for our unique backgrounds and personalities.

It is also time to talk about accountability, consequences, promotions and retention within the workplace. What is different today is that the attitudes have changed from “let’s ignore it and sweep it under the carpet to let’s do something about it!” It is important to listen to those who are brave enough to speak up about issues. Inclusion is essential for high performance however many organisations only pay it lip service. There are ways that companies can take to improve inclusion, and thus productivity. The great irony of organisational diversity and inclusion initiatives is that the “inclusion” aspect is often “excluded”. This year’s lecture has highlighted that inclusion and belonging make diversity work and should be our next focus to help close the diversity gap. Last year, our theme was “together we can change the world” which is still relevant. However, we have to take it up to the next level now with inclusion and belonging.”

At the fourth Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture event, which took place on 26 October 2019, at the University of Law, Brawn delivered the annual diversity leadership lecture providing ideas on inclusion and belonging.

Brawn said: “Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice be heard. Embracing inclusion can lead to more employees feeling a sense of belonging which is a key requirement in the workplace today. Our history making diversity leadership lecture has trailblazed forward once again by bringing both parents and next generation students together to help us close the diversity gap at a faster pace. We are also moving the conversation from talking about diversity to acting upon inclusion and belonging. How to use your most powerful tool – your voice – to help create real change at a faster pace. My upcoming book is out within the next year or so and will include this plus much more.”

A short video of the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture 2019 will be available via the You Tube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHG5BBrYbgePYnFYfpQLJNA
