We were delighted to welcome guests and an audience from diverse industries for an engaging and interactive seminar led by Professor Binna Kandola OBE, a leading speaker and author.

Coming at a time of intense media attention around this topic, Binna focused on the history of racism and explored its modern manifestation in organisations.  Attendees got an opportunity to learn about organisational best practices and left with ideas about tackling modern racism and how to create an inclusive workplace.

The event aimed to share best practices and challenges, create networking opportunities, inspire action and promote future partnerships.
