BritBangla (Bengali: ব্রিটি বাংলা।) is a British social and professional networking association to highlight and promote the work, achievements and contributions of British Bengalis. The association was founded in 2003 and is based in London, England.

History[edit]

BritBangla was founded by Taryn Khanam and Shirin Hussain.[1] On 12 April 2003, the association was launched in Alexandra Palace, London.[2]

On 28 February 2010, the association held a network launch event for the West Midlands in Birmingham, its first outside London.[3]

In October 2011, the association held an event hosted by Lord Nazir Ahmed at the House of Lords, it was organised in conjunction with the US Embassy in London and The Concordia Forum. It brought together members of the UK and US Muslim communities to provide a platform for establishing bilateral links and facilitate networking.[4]

Premise[edit]

BritBangla is a national networking association[3] that brings together second and third generation[5] Bengali professionals in the United Kingdom[6] to serve to the local and international community[4] and has built a reputation for its social, cultural, careers and networking events.[5]

The association has more than 1,000 members[3] from business, media, teaching, finance and the public sector. It provides a platform for Bengali people to voice their views and aspirations,[7] by bringing together like-minded people through social and charitable events, workshops, seminars, undertaking fundraising activities for charities, providing community support,[8] providing a network, and promoting the talents, achievements[3] and contribution[5] of British[3] professionals of Bengali descent (from Bangladesh and India).[1]

The association is for all Bengali-speaking people, is also all-inclusive and welcomes anyone with an interest in the Bengali community who wants to join regardless of race or religious background.[3] It has also received air time from media organisations including, BBC and Channel 4.[7]

In June 2017, BritBangla was re-launched with a new direction and vision to be a forum to develop leadership and empowerment to advancing the Bengali community to prepare for the rise in the world opportunities for growth and build its leaders of industry.[9]
