Event Description

BAME Leadership Oxford Conference (Part 2)

Fri 08 November 2019 17:00-19:00, Oxford SU

We warmly invite you to the second part of the 2019 BAME Leadership Oxford Conference!
Following the immensely successful BAME student leadership event last year, we are back for another year of empowering current and aspiring leaders. This year’s theme ‘Using Your Voice’ revolves around maintaining your authenticity and having impact in white spaces such as Oxford. We’ll be exploring how to control your inner voice, the value of your cultural perspective and the role the SU plays in developing your leadership.
 
Speakers
Workshop by Fope Olaleye. Theme: How to lead in influencing your university.
Fope is the NUS Black Students’ Officer for 2019-2020. She is passionate about anti-oppression education and her focus for this year is on expanding the decolonisation movement and abolishing Prevent Policy by giving students the tools to begin challenging oppressive structures on campus.
 
Panel Discussion. Theme: Experiences of leading at Oxford.
IbzMo, Youtube Influencer
Ibrahim Mohammed, known to many as ‘Ibz Mo’ is a Cambridge University student who has helped demystify Oxbridge through his large social media presence, especially his very popular YouTube channel. Ibz has spoken passionately on many occasion about the need for representation and diversity in UK institutions and shared his experiences of growing up in Hackney, a very diverse London borough, and the transition to Cambridge, where the student body is less diverse. Ibz has a lot of experience in discussing topics that affect BAME groups and has had to learn how to navigate a complex social dynamic all whilst undertaking an undergrad degree, and now a post-grad.
 
Gagan Khurana
Gagan is a third year Physics student and was JCR President at St Anne's College last year
 
Anisha Faruk, SU President
Anisha’s motivation to run as President was to empower students and make sure the university can’t ignore the voices of the student body. Her role involves representing students to the university, acting as a student voice on influential committees at high levels, as well as on the national stage.
 
Leela Jadhav
Leela is a 2nd year law student at Wadham and previous editor of Isis Magazine
