To commemorate this year’s Black History Month, CWU’s National Youth Committee and Equal Opportunities Department will host a joint afternoon event focussing on ‘What black history teaches us about solving today’s challenges’
Date: 11th October (on the eve of the Race Advisory Committee’s conference)
Time: 3:30pm – 5:30pm
Venue: Mechanics Centre (formerly the Mechanics Institute), Manchester
The event is open to all BME members, but we are particularly keen to engage with young activists and members from these communities.
The format will be a panel discussion with ample opportunity for contributions from members of the audience. We have approached a number of high profile activists from the BME Communities and hope to be able to announce the composition of the panel shortly.
This initiative follows on from the very successful black leadership course run by the Equal Opportunities Department in February this year and from the adoption by the CWU’s National Youth Conference of policy committing this section of the union to develop initiatives that specifically engage with young activists from the BME communities.
For information please contact Simon Sapper’s office on 0208 971 7281 or the Equal Opportunities Department on 0208 971 7356.
