This weekend the Diversity Team at LDHQ hosted a training weekend for 18-25 year olds from minority backgrounds. It was a great weekend with plenty of networking, training and visits from PPCs, MPs and peers.
Participants met Ibrahim Taguri PPC for Brent Central, Michael Bukola PPC for Lewisham Deptford as well as Simon Hughes MP and Baroness Ece-Hussein. They had training on a number of things from leadership and debating skills to how to react to a press crisis!
Liberal Youth member, Irfan Ahmed also contributed to the weekend and gave a brilliant speech on the role that Liberal Youth plays within the federal party and how people can get involved.
A big thank-you to everyone who attended the weekend and also to the Diversity Team, who organised it all. If you missed out this time then don't worry because there will be more opportunities to receive training after the General Election!
