The Future Leaders program has a mission to shake up the boardrooms of tomorrow
Women, ethnic minorities and people from low-income backgrounds are still massively underrepresented at senior levels in business. The Future leaders program seeks out young people from these communities who show an appetite for entrepreneurship and potential as future business leaders and give them the skills, network and support they need to be successful.
Bene Agere is one of five companies from The Panoply hosting entrepreneurs as part of the Future Leaders Incubator. The program was launched for the first time in October 2019 and kicked off with a three-day induction in London where the five participants got to know each other a little better and set their goals for the programme. The young leaders then returned to their host office where they would be based for the remainder of the incubator. Throughout the programme the participants have received an allowance to buy time to focus on their project, participated in weekly professional development workshops to hone their skills as entrepreneurs and received guidance from a dedicated 1:1 career coach on a weekly basis.
