As part of our Diversity and Inclusion series with Danske Bank, this webinar is aimed at diversity and inclusion specialists, HR professionals and senior management teams; and will focus on how your organisation can address racism in the workplace and create a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Northern Ireland has a growing migrant community, and this is something to be celebrated and encouraged. However, the PSNI report that in 2020, there was an increase in racist attacks both online and in person but also systemic racism; and many are unreported.

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from Lori Gatsi Barnett, an inspirational diversity and inclusion campaigner; and explore best practice solutions on key diversity and inclusion issues.

This webinar will focus on the following:

  • Racism in everyday life
  • Allyship – what is an ally and how to be one
  • What role can businesses play in tackling racism?
  • How to address racism in the workplace
