BSN North Panel Discussion: ‘It’s OK to talk about race!’ 28-02-2019

February 28, 2019 @ 4:45 pm - 7:00 pm


According to the McGregor-Smith Review – Race in the Workplace, the potential benefit for the UK economy from full representation of BAME individuals across the labour market is estimated to be £24 billion a year, representing 1.3% GDP. Yet only 1 in 16 top management positions are held by a BAME person.

Successful businesses recognise the benefits that a more inclusive workforce can bring through diverse skills, talent and experiences. However, a seismic shift is required in the legal sector to unlock BAME talent.

Given the huge impact and opportunities for the legal services sector, business and the UK as a whole, Addleshaw Goddard and an esteemed BAME panel, have pleasure in inviting you to attend ‘It’s ok to talk about race!’ panel discussion.

This event will provide an excellent platform to hear from some leading BAME players in the legal services sector; debate and discuss strategies which the sector should adopt to ensure diversity and BAME inclusion and share positive experiences and tips for success.

The event will provide a great networking opportunity for individuals looking to embark on a career in law.

The Moderator will be Harold Brako, Partner, Addleshaw Goddard

The Panel:

– Pervinder Kaur, Partner and Head of Private Capital Group, Addleshaw Goddard LLP

– Oliver Gayle, Head of Legal Credit Restructuring, Barclays

– Manisha Patel, Legal Counsel, Zenith

– Varinder Rehal, Group Legal & Company Secretary at IPL Ltd, part of WAL-MART Stores Inc

This event will be incredibly popular and places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
