About this Event

This event aims to open up the conversation on issues around race, sex and class, with particular focus on what the women's sector can be doing to take the lead in addressing these issues.

The event will consist of talks from key speakers considering these issues from organisational and personal perspectives, and will examine how the women's sector can improve its responses to the structural oppressions of race, sex and class.

There will be interactive sessions in the afternoon where participants will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences and create working recommendations for the sector.

This event will feature special guest speaker Minna Salami, writer and lecturer and founder of the acclaimed MsAfropolitan Blog, which covers Africa and the diaspora from a feminist perspective.

She will be joined by key figures from the women's sector including:

  • Patricia Alert, World End Under 5s Centre

  • Ngozi Fulani, Sistah Space
  • Vivienne Hayes, Women's Resource Centre.
