TMBC18 No One Left Behind Conference
Highlights from No One Left Behind 2018 Annual Conference

WHAT was it all about?
No One Left Behind is the social impact conference tackling the challenges young people in the Black Country are facing in the employment market. It's second edition took place on Friday 27th of April 2018 at Copthorne Merry Hill.
The conference is an initiative by Talent Match Black Country aimed at local businesses and employers, government authorities, universities and training providers, youth organisations, funding bodies and all those with an interest in the regional employment landscape and the prosperity of the region. Some young people in the Black Country are living through challenging times and it’s important for us to galvanise all stakeholders to get involved, discuss and tackle the problems. 
No One Left Behind busted the myths surrounding youth employment, providing a platform for young people in the areas of greatest need to share experiences and entice those with the power to do so, to take action.
