We're thrilled to introduce the Student Leadership Board for Black Talent in Banking. The Student Leadership Board provides a point for collaboration between Bright Network and our members.
The Board members have taken an elevated role prior to the event by supporting with outreach and influencing some of the behind-the-scenes of the event, such as panel topics. They will also be providing support on the day during the networking and panel sessions to help maximise the benefits of the event for all attendees.Look out for them on 3rd March - if this is your first in-person event or first time networking in a while and are feeling a bit nervous about the event, the Board members are the perfect people to go to for networking advice!
