Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
8th February 2022 | 13:45 – 15:00

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again revealed the deep inequality when it comes to housing and healthcare for communities of colour.

The social and economic impact has been dire, and it serves to undo much of the progress that our society is trying to bring about as we strive for greater equality.

At the same time, we’ve seen that the essential workers who have put their lives on the frontline during this pandemic have been disproportionately pulled from ethnic minorities. This double-sided impact is broad and far-reaching, and it needs to be rectified.

In this roundtable discussion we’re going to tackle this difficult topic head-on and work on developing some actionable solutions that we can take forward to make improvement. We’ll talk about mental health, hiring practices, community initiatives, and much more. We hope you’ll join us to add your voice to the cause.
