Scottish Conservatives friends of BAME (SCBAME) is an umbrella organisation working directly with the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party to support the BAME communities of Scotland. This organisation will support and inspire a diverse range of people to engage with the party and advocate and promote ideas for improving diversity and inclusion not just within the party but also with a range of partners, stakeholders and other key bodies. This organisation will support more people from BAME backgrounds into political life through awareness and education outreach programmes.
The SCBAME organisation will ensure that the BAME communities in Scotland are recognised by the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party for their contribution and commitment to Scotland.
There is no better time for Scotland to endorse those strong connections with BAME countries around the world and work together with both the Scottish and the UK Governments to better our economy in trade to grow a more prosperous Scotland.
Identify barriers and obstacles for BAME communities and businesses and provide the tools, strategy, policy and networks to overcome them.
Promote the achievements of our community and as a result, inspire BAME individuals to have a voice within the Scottish Conservative Party.
Build partnerships and networks with local and national BAME groups through our developmental events and workshops.
