What to expect at the first Anti Racist Cumbria Summit
Published 6 July 2021
Cumbria is a complex county. Deprivation sits alongside affluence, heavy industry alongside natural beauty. Black and Brown people represent a disproportionately small part of our population. How is anti-racism relevant in Cumbria? Does it even matter to our all-White communities? How can you and your company contribute to an anti-racist county? What does an anti-racist county even mean? How will we know when we get there? What actions can you take? Who else is dealing with inequality in Cumbria?
The first Anti Racist Cumbria Summit will answer these questions and more. Blending inspiring speakers, practical workshops, visionary leaders and round table debates with music, food and more. The Anti Racist Cumbria Summit will bring Cumbria together in new ways and lay out a plan for the future, where no one is left behind.
Taking place on the back of Black History Month we look forward to a day of brave and bold thinking, resilient conversations and open-minded individuals, leaders listening and learning and taking action.
We’re thrilled to bring you Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu as our keynote speaker. Joining her are Billy Welch the Gypsy Leader (Shera Rom), Aneela McKenna founder of Mor Diversity, Fitzroy Andrew Senior Institutional Equity Officer at University East London, Sukhjeen Kaur founder of Chronically Brown, Martin Saunders CEO of VA Consultants and a wealth of Cumbrian and national leaders too.
