2016 Queen’s Young Leaders visit ICE
We are delighted to welcome the 2016 Queen’s Young Leaders to Madingley Hall this week. The Young Leaders are here to take part in a series of workshops, organised by ICE, to help them develop their management and leadership skills.
Over a packed week, Queen’s Young Leaders will visit global corporations, the sights, shops and museums of London – and Buckingham Palace for a reception with Her Majesty the Queen. In the midst of all this, they are spending two days in Cambridge to think, network, be inspired and learn.
This year’s Queen’s Young Leaders, who are aged between 18 and 29 and come from all over the Commonwealth, are working to support others, raise awareness and inspire change on a variety of different issues including education, climate change, gender equality, mental health and disability equality.
The 2016 Leaders will be welcomed and supported by Alumni from the 2015 group during their stay in Cambridge, including:
