Race Equality First (REF) will host their first event in the An Audience with… series that takes a deeper dive into equality matters, looking specifically at racism in the workplace, creating inclusive cultures, challenging behaviours, privilege, positive action and allyship, as well as how to be personally anti-racist. REF deliver Racism, Bias, Discrimination and Hate Crime training to organisations in all sectors that touch on these topics. These events are for those who have received this training, or similar, and would like to learn more about EDI matters in the workplace, and those who are looking to insight genuine, long-lasting change.
The event will include a 15-20min Q&A with our guest speaker where we will encourage our audience to post relevant questions in the chat throughout the event.
