BSN/Rare: Demanding Race Fairness at Work panel event 24 November at 8.30am
November 24 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
24 November 2020 | 8.30-9.30am | Register here
In June, the Black Solicitors Network (BSN) penned an open letter to law firms, asking them to ‘walk the talk’ in relation to racial equality. In July, Rare launched the Race Fairness Commitment, a roadmap to creating race fairness at work. The overwhelming response from law firms stepping up with both calls to action demonstrates their desire to move the dial on race, and realisation that there is still a lot of work to be done.
For our inaugural BSN and Rare collaboration, we have brought together a panel of experts, chaired by BSN’s Paulette Mastin, to discuss how to demand race fairness at work. Our panellists will share their experiences of being a Black lawyer and advice on how to turn dialogue on race into proactive change. It is only through decisive action that we can improve fairness and give an equal chance of success at work for people of all ethnic backgrounds.
We invite you to submit questions for the panellists in advance via e-mail to email@example.com. Please submit your questions by close of business on 12 November 2020.
This event will be held on Zoom. Once registered, you will receive joining instructions prior to the event.
We hope you will join us!
