Stonewall Young Leaders Programme*

'Empowering the next generation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans professionals'

“The programme enabled me to look at myself as a role model and see how I can be a positive role model to others.” - Previous participant

If you are aged 18 to 24, thinking about your future and wondering how your sexual orientation or gender identity relates to your workplace and your career aspirations, the Stonewall Young Leaders Programme could be for you.  Stonewall knows that people perform better when they can be themselves. Our Young Leaders Programmes, once again kindly supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, explores what it means to be yourself in the workplace whilst giving you the spaces to refelct on your values and future expectations.

What to expect

Held over two days with a reunion event six weeks later, the programme will inspire you to think about your impact on others as young LGBT leaders and role models. Led by Stonewall facilitators, the programme creates a safe space for you to explore what it means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans in the workplace.

Who should apply?

We are keen to hear from applicants who are already in work, working and studying on an apprenticeship or who are in education working towards a graduate position. Stonewall especially welcomes applications from black and minority ethnic backgrounds and people who consider themselves to have a disability as they are currently underrepresented at application stage.

How do I apply?

The application process for the Young Leaders Programme will open on 8 June 2015. You will be required to complete an online application form as well as sending us an eletronic version of your CV. 

Please come back to this page on 8 June to apply for the programme.
