Sandra Gordon – co presenter of the Rise Women show which is aired on Monday’s and repeated on Sunday.
A chance meeting with co founder Lynn Mareno in the green room of a TV comedy in 2013, gave birth to the idea of Rise a social enterprise, which was established after a discussion about the lack of visibility of black businesses on the high street. The organisation specialises in providing opportunities for those businesses to promote what they do to a wider audience through organised events, exhibitions and on our weekly radio program on Ujima 98fm, who we joined in 2015.
Socially I am also involved in a few projects and enterprises that focus on supporting the under presented in the city to have the same opportunities to move forward in their lives.
My hope is that everyone in Bristol has an equal opportunity to benefit and enjoy the fruits of this prosperous vibrant city. It will be normal to see an all-inclusive diverse high street within the city centre. Ethnic role models and those in senior prominent positions of power will be easily visible and reflect the make-up of a changing Bristol.
