Black History And Black Futures, An Exploration Of An Unequal History And The Struggles That Still E


London, England- Creating Inclusive Workplaces.


With racism often coded as 'normal behaviour', many individuals and organisations in the UK don't know what unconscious biases are, how they affect Black people and how to become aware of them. To address some of the issues Black British people face today, it's essential to understand the history of Black people in the country - not just for those directly affected but for everyone in this diverse and unequal society.


The webinar "Black History and Black Futures, an exploration of an unequal history and the struggles that still exist", taking place on Oct 19, 2022, will discuss the intersection between an unequal history and the struggles that still exist and how organisations can learn from a more diverse range of experiences. This session has been designed with the hope that it will draw out broader discussions around race, diversity and equality inclusion in the UK.


Recent research suggests that although the UK is one of the most diverse countries in the world, many organisations are struggling to keep up with a rapidly diversifying society. Diversity at work leads to better corporate decision-making, improved communication, and incremental financial gains. With an eye on progress for people of colour in the UK, the highly sought-after speakers, including Ayo Barley, Natalie Denny and Andrew Lynch, will be highlighting what practical steps organisations can take to 'level up the playing field and become more inclusive workplaces by being informed of both past and present inequalities in many spheres of life.
