Upcoming event: Advancing race equality by building a culture of accountability

When: 5 February 2024, 13:00 – 14:30pm (online)

Join this free webinar to find out how to build a culture of accountability which is essential to address racism and advance racial equity.

Cultural change is complex, multi-faceted and takes time. The session is designed to help develop awareness that it is the responsibility of all leaders to create the environment that fosters inclusion and share evidence-based practice on how this is being done in other organisations.

This webinar will cover:

  • how to support leaders to understand how they can embed inclusive leadership behaviours and what personal accountability looks like, with a particular focus on racial equality at a system, place and neighbourhood level.
  • help equip attendees with ideas and insights to explore with a view to applying within their own systems.
