The Inclusion Exchange: "Black History and Black Futures, an exploration of an unequal history and the struggles that still exist"
For our third Inclusion Exchange, we’ll be marking Black History Month by discussing how the past influences the present inequities facing Black people and people from racially minoritized backgrounds, and what organisations should do to 'level up' the playing field, by being informed of the history of race and racism in the UK.

On the agenda:

- Understanding Black History in the UK

- Current trends and outcomes for Black and racially minoritised communities in health, education, the criminal justice system and how this is connected to our history.

- What we can do to honour the realities of an unequal history and challenge the current inequalities facing Black and racially minoritized populations

- Practical tips and takeaways

- Live Q&A

Oct 19, 2022 12:00 PM in London
