The benefits of role modelling
In this podcast, Umar Kankiya draws attention to the importance of role models in inspiring people to achieve their goals.
Black, Asian and minority ethic (BAME) lawyers represent a small percentage of the profession so the more visible and active these lawyers are, the more it will encourage children, young people and anyone with aspirations of becoming a lawyer.
Role modelling is a key priority for the Ethnic Minority Lawyers Division (EMLD) committee.
We have launched an EMLD university student roadshow with visits to universities with a high representation of BAME students.
The roadshows give students access to role models who share their journey and provide the students with practical tips on navigating their career path into a career in law.
Umar Kankiya is head of mental health at Sternberg Reed.
