Diversity Arts Network meeting – legacy of the Black Lives Matter movement

On the first anniversary of George Floyd’s murder and the recent conviction we look back at how this and the BLM protests following this has changed us. It has greatly influenced many of us to look at our own behaviours, working practices, prejudices and biases which will help to develop our cultural landscape in the future. We are inviting you to share your thoughts on how this has affected you. In breakout rooms you will also have an opportunity to discuss challenges you face in taking Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work forward, and about what you think needs to change.


The facilitator for these sessions will be Kamaljit Poonia, who is a Diversity Consultant and Leadership Coach.

Kamaljit has worked on ED&I issues for over 15 years. She had headed ED&I teams in local authorities (Camden and Bristol), been a Diversity Advisor in the Civil Service (Department for International Development, Cabinet Office) and headed the ED&I team at the University of Southampton. She is also a trained and practicing coach. For the last three years Kamaljit has worked as an independent consultant with clients across the Arts and Cultural sector, Local authorities, and business sector. 

In 2018 she was presented with a top 100 Global Diversity and Inclusion Leaders Award at the Annual Global HRD conference in Mumbai. 

Please do book early as numbers are limited. Look forward to seeing some of you then. We will send you a zoom link once you have registered.
