Why an LGBTI Leadership contest
There is a distinct lack of  LGBT role models in the workplace, so much so that 62% of generation Y LGBT graduates who were out at University went back into the closet when their started their first job. Through inspiring talks, challenges and a tangible leadership network to be launched on the 24th July, RAHM is designed to remedy this challenging professional environment for LGBTI people. RAHM’s mission is to become the platform where the collective voice and wisdom of the most inspiring and innovative LGBT leaders is heard.

Benefits of the Leadership Contest

  • Throughout the day, attendees will have the chance to expand their LGBTI leadership network. This opportunity is available long term with the launch of an online platform
  • Attendee’s will develop their leadership skills through dynamic and innovative workshops.
  • With a range of top-level professional backgrounds at the event, this event offers unique career opportunities.
  • There are number of additional benefits, including awards and prizes.

Application Process
The application process to attend RAHM is rigorous and designed in two stages. In stage 1, leadership candidates upload their CV through the RAHM website and disclose their personal motivation for applying. We are particularly  interested in achievements and experience of leadership.. In the second stage, we ask for a recommendation letter and we will conduct a video interview. Candidates who excel in both stages will be formally invited to the event. Promising candidates who do not make the preselected top 100 list will be invited to join the online network.
