What do people say about the programme

“Olmec’s Black on Board project is tackling inequality at its roots by not only providing the required skill for disadvantaged people to compete but also bringing attention to the problem of unacceptably low (in some cases non-existent) representation of people of African descent and other minorities on HA Boards’’ 

The course was hard, fun, dynamic, demanding, testing and what evolved was teamwork ... a team that identified itself not separately as pupils/tutors/facilitators but all three strengths working together and learning from each other. And the more we learnt, the more we realised, and the more we realised, the bigger the need we established to take control of social housing.”

"The Black on Board programme has helped me develop my skills and confidence and provide the support I needed to work with a housing association board. The particular area that I needed to develop was the jump from operational to strategic skills. Olmec has taken time to support me with this. I would recommend the programme to others"
