As the end of 2018 draws near, Equality Forums and our team at the Community Impact Initiative Projects wish to extend our festive cheers as the team reflect on its past strengths, development and key insights gained from extensive research.
Looking forward to further implement key initiatives plans for 2019, designed with continuity to enhance and develop capabilities and leadership opportunities for black minority ethnic (BME) individuals and communities.
2019 is on track to be a bigger and better year than last! Over the last few months our team have been working heavily on new strategic development planning to extend our forums sessions to allow for more training and workshop sessions, exploring issues like unconscious bias, stereotype threats, diversity in the workplace and more. We also have lined up a range of workshops, film screenings, community events and more all scheduled for the new year. As you can imagine, we are pleased to kick-start 2019 with a positive start!! So keep watching for more inspiration and community development throughout the upcoming months.
For more details and a sneak preview of what’s on throughout next year, join us at our Race: On The Agenda event in February, for the opportunity to explore, discuss and exchange best practices. You will hear from BME leaders about skills and competencies required to utilise opportunities effectively and succeed confidently, network with peers and leaders, be motivated by inspirational speakers who’ll share experiences, and examine barriers, constraints and challenges which may affect progression.
Also find out how you can engage with other individuals who are dealing with same or similar issues, and learn collectively how to lay strong foundations to help build self-sustainable communities, unlock potential and accelerate growth. Volunteer your time or donate to our projects. We hope to see you soon…
Until then, on behalf of all the team, we wish you peace, health and prosperity.
In solidarity, Equality Fourms
