  • are also able to actively seek out the voices of people who are not currently heard, work with other perspectives, and aim to agree a ‘collective good’

  • will inspire BAME/People of Colour (PoC) to participate in civic life

  • will champion the work of the panel to encourage wider participation and buy-in to its work

  • have insight or first-hand experience of the issues the panel will focus on
