BaoLab Summit

Tue, 11 May 2021

9:00 - 17:30


We are you. You are us. Baobab is a new type of foundation, led by the communities it serves, putting power and money where it needs to be - in the hands of those who know what to do with it. Baobab will be a new force in the funding ecosystem in the UK, educating funders, challenging systems which disadvantage Black and Ethnic Minority Communities, creating larger and more inclusive funding programmes than have ever been tried before.

The BaoLab Summit is a chance for Black and Minority Ethnic focused community organisations to shape the future of Baobab. How it will exist, who should be at the heart of it and how it can put power in the hands of those closest to the community.

Over these two days members of the Baobab Network - social change agents will host sessions across a range of themes from our funding priorities, power and governance. As a member of Baobab you are invited to lead discussions on topics of your choice.

f you have an idea and you’d like to lead a session, please get in touch with Jinan ( to arrange to host a session at the BaoLab Summit. We welcome facilitators from Black and Minority Ethnic community organisations.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note BSL interpreters and captions will be provided throughout the summit.
