In response to George Floyd’s horrific murder, the Black Lives Matter movement has grown and caught the attention of many. This time, really focused discussions are happening in regards to Black people’s economic power and the colonial structures that underpin practices and recruitment in significant sectors like Education; Television and Media etc. It’s important that we do not solely engage in discussion, but actively engage in facilitating and creating change.

We have invited three special guests, who will speak about their own experiences as Black people In the UK and they will share the ways that they are engaging with improving the experiences of Black people in their chosen field.
