David Lammy MP

David Lammy MP

David Lammy is the Member of Parliament for Tottenham, one of London’s most diverse constituencies. One of the leading agenda-setters in the fields of social activism, diversity and multi-culturalism, he was a member of the previous Labour Government (2001-2010), is respected across the party spectrum and a well-known figure amongst the general public.

David’s current position as an active backbench MP has enabled him to engage in his passion for tackling the big issues facing society (on a macro and micro scale) and provide tangible solutions to bring about effective change.

Named in the 100 Great Black Britons list in 2003 and 2020, as well as on the Powerlist of the Most Influential People in the UK of African/African-Caribbean Descent in 2020 and 2021, David has a passionate view on issues regarding diversity and race. He is now a popular speaker for corporate events, discussing topics such as the criminal justice system and diversity in business.

It’s so important for our students to get the opportunity to meet people of David Lammy’s calibre and experience. It’s part of the work that we do at London Academy and David’s session spurred them on to imagine an aspirational future for themselves.

It was an honour to have David Lammy overseeing proceedings at our Diversity in Television event. As a former Culture Minister who has taken a keen interest in diversity issues, particularly in the media, our delegates benefited from having a policymaker who is shaping the debate chair the discussion and post questions to our speakers.

At a time when the creative industries are debating better diversity, David Lammy came to talk to the staff of London College of Fashion about barriers, as well as opportunities to bring about better integration and innovation. For an industry such as fashion where a lack of diversity has been such an issue, his talk was both inspiring and informative.
