Senate House Chambers is extremely proud to be hosting an intern from the 10,000 Black Interns Initiative. 10,00 Black Interns is an initiative set up to offer an internship to young black people in the UK. It seeks to offer up to 2,000 internships each year for 5 consecutive years – hence the name 10,00 Black Interns. It was launched in 2021 following on from the pilot initiative 100 Black Interns. 10,000 Black Interns have partnered up with more than 700 firms from 24 different sectors, delivering internships across a range of internal business functions. Both the Law Society and the Bar Council have become partners with this initiative.

It helps us stay motivated, work toward goals, and feel good about life.
