About the event

Covid-19 and the recent Black Lives Matter protests challenging ‘whiteness’, ‘white supremacy’ and ‘white privilege’ highlight that both the structural, interpersonal and everyday life of black and minority communities is a different and often a separate lived experience to a white population.

This raises key issues for community educators and the process of building allies. This discussion will offer an insight into white, lived experiences and the challenges we all face to connect, share and place value on our lives.

The future of diversity, equity, and inclusion as a result of the current climate.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Race, privilege and implications on educators, learners, and business leaders
  • The future of diversity, equity, and inclusion as a result of the current climate.
