Inspiring Different Leaders Day
Mon 5 December 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Come and join us for what is sure to be an inspirational evening.
We'll be hosting the 2nd edition of International Inspiring Different Leaders day open to all which take place simultaneously in 6 cities around the world.
Who are the Different Leaders?
Different Leaders is a community gathering young executives and students who took part in Passeport Avenir's mentoring programme.
The community is also open to each and every person willing to be part of a network of young leaders who promote diversity through their backgrounds (ethnic, geographical, social, etc.), ethics and personal stories.
The Different Leaders community is thus meant; to represent French society in its entirety.
Social inequality and discrimination have a huge impact on youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. Despite having the same abilities as others, such school pupils have to overcome the social, economic, and cultural obstacles that inhibit their access to higher education.
We want every student to have the ability to achieve a bright future, from university to the corporate world, according to their potential, regardless of their birthplace. We believe that diversity of talent and background can bring a source of added value and innovation.
Hence, we believe in building bridges between the corporate world, higher education and the Government to create a platform from which we can promote equality of opportunity.

Craig Pinkney: Criminologist, Urban Youth Specialist, Lecturer and Founder of Real ActionUK
Malia Bouattia: President of the National Union of Students
Gwen Rhys: CEO Women in the city
