Marjorie Perkins

Vice-Chair of the Board


what makes me hopeful?

The work that The Advocacy Academy does to encourage the next generation of changemakers.

what makes me angry?

Anything that limits the confidence that young people have in their leadership abilities.


I am currently the network product manager at the world’s leading telecommunications company called BT - maybe you’ve heard of it? I’m also an award winning diversity and inclusion specialist and telecoms product manager. For over 20 years I have supported young people to increase their confidence in their leadership abilities, having led the committee of BT’s ethnic diversity network for the past 6 years.

One of my proudest achievements was spearheading the Aleto foundation partnership with BT to deliver a talent pipeline of young black professionals. In my spare time I love to read, listen to music and go on long walks - currently living my best life in London.
