Black Leaders are delighted to invite you to our official 2021 Black Inclusion Week Launch in partnership with Inclusive Companies, focusing on our key theme ‘BE THE CHANGE’.
During this virtual event, Sue Liburd MBE, Non-Executive Director at ABSTRACT and winner of the Inclusive Companies Champion of Inclusion Award, will be joined by a host of powerful keynote speakers and panellists as we encourage learning, reflection, and taking action towards inclusion.
Black Inclusion Week raises awareness of the importance of Black Inclusion and creates a platform for change to enable true equality for people of African and Caribbean descent. May 10th marks the beginning of a week long campaign filled with dynamic events and activities, which aim to:
- Make us stronger as one community
- Create a commitment towards change
- Be a celebration of Black people in the UK
- Empower all and facilitate action
- Connect us through collaboration
Our official launch event is a brilliant way to engage in conversation about this vital topic and hear from those that are leading at the forefront as we delve into the Black experience from various cultural aspects.
Join the increasing number of individuals and organisations that see our vision; those that are brave and innovative, and those who want to sustain true inclusion in society.
Change starts with you. We ALL play a part, each and everyone of us.
