 Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is working in partnership with Operation Black Vote to deliver a leadership and development programme aimed at addressing the underrepresentation of people experiencing racial inequalities within civic and public life.

The Civic Leadership Programme 2021 is looking for 30 people over the age of 18 who live or work in Greater Manchester who want to gain experience in civic and public life and make a positive contribution to their areas and communities.

Over six months, participants on the programme will take part in a series of training sessions and gain an insight into different areas of public life, including education, local government, health, policing, the criminal justice system, and the voluntary sector.

In addition, Operation Black Vote will host a series of online sessions for younger people, led by high-profile speakers talking about their experiences in overcoming barriers and achieving their aspirations.
