Team

Diane Spence
Founder and CEO

Diane spent over 25 years in the IT sector; working for numerous organisations, including FTSE 100 companies. “During my career, I have consistently found a lack of diversity and representation in leadership positions, particularly in STEM roles and would like to focus on creating positive change and maximise opportunities for all.  In addition, I would like to assist young people to believe they can achieve their goals and work collaboratively to create a desire for knowledge, thus increasing attainment grades and reducing detention and exclusion rates.”

Debra Johnson
Director

Having worked for 13 years in the education sector and more recently in children’s social care Debra is keen to see an improvement in the attainment grades of young, black British people. “I would like to see a change in the curriculum, so all young people are educated on the contribution black lives have made to the progression of our world and to encourage and inspire those that are currently underachieving.”

Juliet Mutemwa
Events Coordinator

Juliet’s volunteering experiences both nationally and internationally sparked a desire to help young people achieve success in all forms. Studying Criminology to gain a better understanding of attainment barriers – I am keen to empower young people and help them reach their full potential. A quote that serves as my life’s mantra is “believe you can, and you are halfway there.”
