Black Lives & Business - Empowering the Next Generation in the UK

Date & Time: 2 July 2020, 2pm BST / 9am EDT

The Black Lives Matter movement has prompted global reflection on the systemic nature of racial injustice at every level of society, including the UK. More and more seem to recognise an opportunity and responsibility to begin the work of reimagining how our schools, universities, workplaces, communities, and nations can be places where all are respected for who they are. 

In a new series on Black Lives and Business, IHRB and partners will reflect on the issue of young black men and women seeking to enter and progress within employment, enterprise, creative industries and the ownership structures that determine how our economies work. The first of these discussions is on 2 July 2020 and brings together Baroness Lola Young of Hornsey and the former UK Government Minister Sam Gymiah with IHRB's Senior Advisor on Global Issues, Salil Tripathi, to discuss the next generation of leaders concerned about their futures, with questions and ideas about the way forward.
