Diversity Days 2021

On 25th March 2021, the Naz Legacy Foundation held a Diversity Day in partnership with the EY Muslim Community. The event, which was attended by over 130 school students, provided an opportunity for young people learn top tips on how to kickstart their careers & hear how diverse EY employees have broken barriers and championed resilience, including EY Partner Arun Batra OBE who leads EY’s market facing Culture, Diversity and Inclusion practice. ​

The students had a presentation introducing them to EY and what they offer. The students were then lucky enough to engage in a live Q&A panel with a diverse range of EY employees.

We thank EY Muslim Community for all their brilliant presentations and Q&As with our students.

On 25 February 2021, the Naz Legacy Foundation held a Diversity Day in partnership with Imperial College London. The event, which was attended by over 100 school students, provided an opportunity for young people either studying STEMM subjects and/or who had an interest in pursuing Higher Education, to learn more about the university experience, including in particular studying STEMM subjects.

The students had a presentation introducing them to Higher Education, what Imperial College London offers, and STEMM career pathways – followed by a Q&A. The students were then lucky enough to engage in a live Q&A panel with a diverse range of Imperial student ambassadors.

We thank Imperial College London for all their brilliant presentations and Q&As with our students.

On 21 January 2021, the Naz Legacy Foundation held a virtual UK Parliament Diversity Day with over 200 students from five schools. Students received an ‘Introduction to Parliament’ workshop led by the UK Parliament Education Team. Students spoke about freedom of speech, our rights, power and equality as being essential components of our democracy.

They also got the chance to speak to their local MP about issues that mattered to them. We were lucky to be joined by Stella Creasy (MP for Walthamstow) and Wes Streeting (MP for Ilford North and Shadow Minister for Schools). Here are some of the students’ great ideas about improvements that could be made to our society:

·        Schools to provide healthy food to students so we can reduce the sick people in hospitals to save the NHS money

·        It should be easier for jobless people to get a job easily

·        The legal age of voting should be 16

·        University fees should be cheaper for people who can’t afford it

·        Homeless people should be taken into mind more

·        Better ways of learning & change in education system

We look forward to delivering more sessions virtually to students this term and providing more outlets for young people to make their voices heard.
