This is the final webinar in our four-part mini-series on issues of race and justice in policing, education, the culture sector and wider society, as part of the regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars from Cumberland Lodge.
We will be joined by guest panellists:
- Heather Hatton - PhD student at the History Department of the University of Hull and Cumberland Lodge Fellow
- Sunder Katwala - Director, British Future
- Wilf Sullivan - Race Equality Officer, Trades Union Congress (TUC)
This discussion is presented by Cumberland Lodge trustee, JP Rangaswami.
What will we be discussing?
The debate on ethnic inequality and injustice has ebbed and flowed for decades. In recent weeks, however, the conversation has escalated into mainstream media as a cross-societal issue. Black Lives Matter, and connected protest in the UK, have thrown up urgent conversations across government, policing, education, business and the third sector.
This final webinar draws on our three previous discussions in July, to identity key areas where action needs to be taken, and what that action should be, to address the persistence of racism, structural inequality and racial discrimination in the UK.
Dialogue & Debate is a regular series of interactive webinars from Cumberland Lodge, with guest panellists, live polls and audience question-and-answer sessions. It is supported by our charitable funds.
