Black History Month Event – Leadership that makes a difference

Virtual via MS Teams.

Race Ahead: Big Conversations on Race and Allyship

NHSEI Midlands invite you to join us this October for Black History Month 2021.

Black History Month (BHM) is an annual celebration of the contribution that Black African and Caribbean communities have made both locally and across the world.  Recent significant events have really turned the spotlight on the current depth and breadth of racism across the world. So, this year’s Black History Month is more important than ever, but it’s not just a month, it is a year-round acknowledgement.

In line with the Midlands Regional Workforce, Race Equality & Inclusion Strategy we want turn the tide of racism together and educate, support and challenge ourselves and our colleagues.

We are holding a series of three webinars to aim to share lived experiences and highlight changes that have, should or are in the process of happening. These events are an opportunity to hear from Black colleagues about what more they need others to do in standing up to racism.

Webinar 2: Leadership that makes a difference

19th October 13.00-14.30

The burden for tackling racism must not be on Black people. Too often we have seen that racism is an issue for those being abused to solve. This is wrong. At this webinar you will hear from Executive Leaders on how they have used their leadership to support Black staff to drive improvements on racial justice.

Anyone working within the NHS in the Midlands.
