At GMB we want to make politics more representative and would like to encourage more Councillors from racially diverse backgrounds.
The Local Government Association polled UK Councillors in 2018 and found that 96% of the Councillors who respond identified as white. In order to equip members who might be interested in becoming a Councillor, GMB West Midlands are running training sessions during Black History Month for members from Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic backgrounds.
These sessions will take place on
- Wednesday 21st October 2020 at 1pm – 3pm
- Tuesday 27th October 2020 at 6pm – 8pm
