LEAH NICHELLE-MARIE BROWN

ACTIVIST THINGS

If you would like to book Leah to speak at an event, please email her or DM via @seenheardspoken or @OnlyOneLeah.

Leah is a trustee of the Youth Charter, a UK registered charity and UN accredited non-governmental organisation, that empowers young people today so that they can have a better tomorrow.

 

She is also a trustee and secretary of Big Green Heart, a charitable enterprise that facilitates emotional freedom in young people through forgiveness.

 

Leah works closely with GlobalMindED, a US charity closing the equity gap by creating a capable, diverse talent pipeline, and acts as a mentor for undergraduate students.

Leah is an active member of FORUM (hosted by the Legatum Institute), a space where she is confronted by the need to effect social change. She is an advisor to the Race Equality Commission, and is a media volunteer for Mind (the mental health charity). She is also a part of Inspiring Diverse Leaders.

In early 2022, Leah started a blog entitled outRAGEous. The blog is a synergy of Leah’s passion for activism coupled with her philosophy and politics degree, and acute interest in mental health, diversity, equality and inclusion.

On Black History Month 2022:

The Youth Charter's theme for Black History Month is Time for Change: Action Not Words. The Youth Charter has created a BLACK HISTORYwise Education Pack. This module reflects our Youth Charter equality, diversity and inclusion framework and specific areas of under-representation in sport, art, culture and digital activity.

The BLACK HISTORYwise covers the history of slavery, including the emancipators as well as leading Black luminaries. Illustrated by Rik Cheetham, this dynamic educational took can be used by teachers in all subjects on the national curriculum. The stimulating interactive classroom projects have biographical information on key figures in politics, the civil rights movement, sport and the arts. There is also a unique collection of graphic images of some of the greatest Black achievers of the 20th and 21st centuries.

MENTORING THINGS

Leah has been an active mentor since 2011. Most recently she has participated in a scheme with GlobalMindED in 2021-2022 for first generation university student in the US. Leah also mentors female Law students in the UK and is committed to helping the next generation prosper.  Leah gives careers talks to school-age children interested in a career in law.

 

If you would like to invite Leah to speak at your school or to give a presentation to young students or aspiring lawyers, please get in touch.

SPOKEN THINGS

Leah started talking over thirty years ago and hasn’t stopped since. She used to talk to anyone who would listen but has become much more selective with words.

As part of her portfolio career, Leah is an engaging speaker for events on topics ranging from diversity to justice, and regularly speaks on matters of faith, trauma, careers and personal development. Her favourite subject is authenticity.
