4 Conversations – an interactive discussion event

Despite much progress in recent years there are still many groups and communities that face ongoing discrimination on a daily basis. Focusing on four of these topics, this discussion event will feature four speakers sharing real life experiences of discrimination with a particular focus on language and its effects.

Attendees will then be invited to take part in 4 group conversations on each topic to provide an opportunity increase understanding of each other, examine the language we use and gain confidence around preferred language.

There will also be a session on sharing and learning ways we as individuals can tackle discrimination when we encounter it.

Tea, Coffee and Refreshments available throughout and a buffet lunch will be served from 12.30-13.00.
