Organised by the Muslim Council of Britain, the Muslim Leadership Dinner brings together leaders from all walks of British Muslim life. Leadership comes in many forms and from a variety of sources.
Over the years, prominent politicians including senior government ministers, Judges, diplomats, business leaders, academics, media personalities and civil society leaders joined leading Muslims from across the United Kingdom at this unique event in the British Muslim calendar.
Last year, the Muslim Leadership Dinner brought together over 400 distinguished guests to celebrate the Muslim voice within the environmental movement and to look at how we can strengthen our efforts for an eco-friendly world. Chief guests included; Caroline Lucas MP and Afsheen Kabir Rashid MBE, Repowering’s Co-founder Director and Chief Operating Officer.
Aims and objectives of this project:
- Bringing together influential British leaders
- Networking to build a stronger community
- Discussing issues affecting British Muslims
Muslim Leadership Dinner 2017
Following divisive rhetoric after the vote to leave the EU and the election of the new US President, the eighth Muslim Leadership Dinner, on Tuesday 25th April 2017, will highlight how we have more in common than that which divides us, and underscore the strength we have in uniting together to work for the common good.
