Bristol BME Powerlist 2018


The Bristol BME Powerlist is organised by University of Bristol, Bristol Students' Union and Bristol 24/7 and launched on 1st October to honour the beginning of Black History month. The project aims to showcase and celebrate 100 BME people in Bristol that have been successful, influential, and an inspiration to their peers and community.  Our director, Sado Jirde, contributed as a member of a panel for the Activism and campaigning strand and stated: 

“BSWN is delighted and proud to be supporting the BME Powerlist initiative, aimed at celebrating Black excellence in the city by providing role models for the next generation to motivate and inspire them. Furthermore, the list demonstrates the diverse talents that exist within the community that often goes unnoticed. It has been a great honour to be part of the judging panel.”
