Inspire to Aspire

November 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC

Six of Black Cultural Archives’ 40×40 ambassadors share their journey of success, from ideation to realisation.


Whatever your dreams and goals, Inspire to Aspire has a speaker that will share their story to help you attain your goals. This event is designed to support young people between 16 and 24 years old navigate their way to their chosen future careers.

Black Cultural Archive’s 40×40 Future Leaders Ambassadors will share their personal stories and how they navigated their way to success in various sectors, which include, technology, health, education, business start-ups and more. They will do so whilst mentoring, engaging, networking and inspiring young people to aspire to their dream career. Featuring REAL models – not role models.

The session will also include an ABC (Audio Business Card) Pitching session giving you the confidence to introduce yourself in any competitive environment such as networking, elevator pitch, or interviews.

Deputy Mayor for London Debbie Bernard Weekes will be in attendance.

The goal of this event is to see the group of young people in attendance, more focused, confident and resilient as they leave than they were when they walked in.
