Virtual Event: Black Inclusion – Past, Present & Future
Thursday 22nd October | 10.00 – 12.00 BST
Honouring Black History Month and the Official Launch of Black Leaders, this dynamic and insightful event in partnership with Auto Trader UK will feature a host of influential speakers and a powerful panel session. Not only will we explore an interesting array of topics, but we will delve into various aspects of Black History through time, celebrating Black Inclusion throughout the past, present & future.
The Past: Renowned social historian, television presenter and journalist Laurence Westgaph will explore Black History and celebrate the forgotten stories of some of the most influential black people through time.
The Present: The shocking death of George Floyd caught on video in the US sparked protests all over the UK and a national debate over Britain’s history. This panel session features powerful speakers from backgrounds of community, education, charity and business, who will explore some of the issues in the UK which prompted so many to react, and what we as a society are facing today.
The Future: The time for change is now! We all have a duty to drive change and set a course for a better, more inclusive future. Black Leaders is a national community aimed at addressing the inequalities and the systemic barriers faced by black people across all aspects of society. During this segment Black Leaders will investigate what the future holds and launch groundbreaking initiatives such as the Black Inclusion Index, empowerment leadership programme for communities, and Black Inclusion Week.

Workshop: Menopause in the Workplace – Facilitated by Henpicked
Tuesday 10th November | 10.30 – 12.00 BST
Did you know that menopausal women are the fastest growing population at work? Or that around 8 out of 10 menopausal women are in work? Whilst some women sail through menopause, 3 in 4 experience symptoms and as many as 1 in 4 have serious symptoms. However, around half have never consulted a healthcare professional about their menopause. This is an increasingly popular subject for all employers and their employees, supporting Diversity & Inclusion, and Equality.
To mark World Menopause Day, this webinar will help you understand what you need to know and do within your organisation to provide the right awareness, education and support.
This webinar will provide participants with:
An overview of the compelling reasons for menopause awareness, education and support in the workplace, and why it’s now urgent and important.
An understanding of what menopause is and how it can affect someone at work.
An understanding of best practice, demonstrated by AutoTrader’s case study.
What you can do in your organisation and how to do it.
