Date and time
Virtual meeting on Zoom.
Event: Join the movement #IAMTALKINGABOUTBLACK
At a time when people are already anxious, many within our industry (and beyond) feel traumatised by these incidents. While you don’t have to be of a particular ethnicity to understand the pain, prejudice and injustice, it is the black community who are bearing the brunt of this hurt and stress.
But how do we ALL move forward together from this? Against this backdrop, #talkaboutblack believes it is important to reach out to people of all ethnicities with the launch of the #IAM social media campaign, which aims to:
- Highlight the structural obstacles black people have faced throughout history and still face today.
- Demonstrate leadership from senior black professionals and allies to show that, despite racial disparities throughout the world, there is hope.
- Recognise that we can all support each other and that everyone must stand together to create a fair and equitable society.
Speakers will also share their own thoughts and feelings about recent events, as well as provide practical ways for all to make a positive and sustainable difference, in an open and candid discussion.
