3rd Global Leaders Summit Tackling Endemic Discrimination Post-Covid-19 Monday 23rd November 14:30-16:30 (GMT)The above webinar follows on from the Leadership Summit held on 29th May 2020, in which leaders from across sectors came together to progress the ambition of bringing an end to systemic discrimination. Mayor Marvin Rees (Bristol and Global Parliament of Mayors) and Cllr Asher Craig have been leading this initiative in collaboration with Tracie Jolliff from NHS England and Improvement. Since its inception the group has grown to include leaders from across the globe and continues to gain momentum. There is broad consensus about the need to seize this moment to accelerate change, in the face of the racial pandemic in which people of black and Asian decent are being disproportionately affected and are dying globally. The initial focus and work of this group is to create a manifesto for racial equity and justice.
The creation of a manifesto for action
In collaboration with leaders from all walks of life, we have been crafting the manifesto around four pillars: Leadership, Education, Business & Enterprise and Health & Mental Wellbeing. We recognise that there is much more work to be done in order to dismantle the structures that uphold and reproduce racial injustice, however after much debate, the group has identified these four pillars as the ones to begin with.
On the third webinar we will share and further shape the proposals for a draft manifesto to guide action.
