BLACK GOVERNORS AND PROSPECTIVE GOVERNORS
On 17th, 21st and 23rd September 2020, NBGN will be running webinars for existing Black Governors and those who are either waiting to be appointed or are interested in being appointed as a school governor. These sessions will cover updates since our last webinar in June 2020 and provide and extended session of questions to support your journey.
CLICK HERE to register for one of the webinars, where you will hear from the newly appointed CEO of the National Black Governors Network about what's been happening over the summer shutdown and also, Olivia D Hinds is back with us to answer your questions. For current Black Governors, your session will be about sharing experiences and identifying your training needs to support your knowledge and value for the school you govern.
The 1½ hour sessions (availability on 17th, 21st or 23rd September 2020) will allow you to ask as many questions you wish so join early and be part of the whole event.
The education sector are beginning to understand the need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and therefore our community need to also be proactive in filling those gaps around the table both in terms of knowledge and cultural understanding.

NBGN | About Us
The National Black Governors Network (NBGN) was created in 2017 by experienced Governors from the Black Community, who were in essence simply tired of being ‘the only Black in the room’! Governing Bodies across the 30,000 plus schools in the UK consist of predominantly 95% White-British people who themselves are beginning to ask the question - WHY?!
MEMBERSHIP - At NBGN, our membership is for Black African and Black Caribbean heritage individuals from all walks of life, who are keen to be appointed at a strategic level in UK schools; to bring their difference, to make a difference in the education of all children.
FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY - We provide an opportunity for you as a Black individual or community group, to make your voice heard, and identify suitable governor vacancies in your local schools. This includes training and development to prepare you for the application process and supporting your ongoing development.
FOR SCHOOLS - NBGN offers the ability to clearly identify, and where possible match individuals, with the skill set required to add value to your Governing Bodies and Trust Boards.
