MD2MD values diversity and our bursary scheme is intended to encourage a diverse membership.
Bursary membership of MD2MD is available if you are female, from an ethnic minority, are LGBT+, aged under 30, based outside the UK or run an organisation that is not for profit and you have an income of less than £100,000 per annum.
For bursary members we contribute 20% of the fee for Online membership and 50% of the fee for Blended membership.
We know this bursary scheme won’t solve the diversity challenge in itself. And some may see it as patronising. If so we apologise as that is not our intention. It’s really simply a signal that we care and are trying to address the challenge. So it’s your choice. If you can help us by accepting the gesture positively as intended. Thank you. And if you prefer to help us by just being you, a diverse leader among leaders, then thank you too.

My greater surprise though was just how my own experiences were able to help others. "View full case study
