#YoungAndBlack: a series of conversations exploring black identity within the UK. This event will be focused on being black in the workplace

Being Black in the Workplace

This event will bring together a range of experts to explore what it means to be black in the working environment. Our panel will be sharing their experiences, highlighting what change can and needs to be made whilst highlighting resources and organisation who have already started the journey of supporting young and black people in the UK to navigate the workplace.


Following the impact of COVID-19 on BAME people across the world, the echoes of tragedies such Windrush and Grenfell and culminating in the murder of George Floyd in the US, we launched the #YoungAndBlack campaign alongside, My Life My Say and The Diana Award, and activist, Jermain Jackman. The #YoungAndBlack campaign is a safe space to share, listen and learn from the experiences of young Black people.
