Why the Mumtaza Bureau?
Women, and particularly Women of Colour (WOC), are severely underrepresented, globally, across all spheres of power. Women of Colour suffer uniquely from the unconscious biases that affect all our interactions: research has shown this has led to WOC being rendered invisible, and this is keenly felt in critical decision-making domains.
The Mumtaza Bureau's two-pronged approach is simple.
Firstly, we help corporates and events find speakers who will bring unique and valuable perspectives to their next event by connecting them to the voices they have been missing.
Secondly, we empower women of colour in diverse sectors and industries through training, mentoring and support. This ensures all our speakers are best placed to contribute their insights and are building their capacity by being Mumtaza Bureau speakers.
Tackling biases and the unequal reality we live in requires a complex web of social change solutions. Mumtaza Bureau is one strand, doing its part to weave a better future.
