BME employment in the West Midlands
Fri 21 April 2017, 14:00 – 16:00 BST
Inequality persists for ethnic minority groups in the job market. We know that Black people in Birmingham are approximately three times more likely to be unemployed than White British people. And the economic recovery has not been shared equally with Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities still saddled with unequal employment prospects.
With Local Authorities under increased strain - how can we work together to secure a fair deal for Birmingham’s BME communities?
How do we make sure everyone benefits from economic growth in the West Midlands?
What opportunities does Devolution offer to improve employment outcomes?
What can local businesses do?
We’re inviting you to share your views and discuss solutions with experts and policy makers.
