Description

Dear Friend,

We are excited to invite you to the official launch of the North East London Fabian Society (covering the boroughs of Enfield, Waltham Forest, Haringey and Hackney) on Monday 29th January 2018, 7:00PM - 9:00PM in Committee Room 20 in the Houses of Commons. We hope this event will be the start of many more engaging and meaningful policy discussions in the run up to the next General Election.

Please note that security checks are required to enter House of Commons, we kindly ask you to arrive at 7:00PM, so we can start at 7:30PM, allowing the event to start and end on time. If you have accessibility needs please refer to this link for more information.

We would also like to thank the keynote speaker Stella Creasy MP (Walthamstow), for hosting the reception and grateful for the support of Simon McVicker (Director of Policy for ipse), Cllr Niraj Dattani (Head of Partnerhsips for Spacehive and Innovation Lead for Harrow Borough Council) and Jane Mansour (Independent Policy Consultant) for their input in what will be a key discussion topic, 'The Changing World of Work'.

While record numbers of people are in employment and more jobs are being created - the world of work is increasingly becoming ever more complex and uncertain. In order to prepare for what is being called the ‘new industrial revolution’, we need to better understand what the future is going to look like, what skills, knowledge and attributes will be important for success. In turn, technological change is just one of several global trends that will impact on employment. Inequality is not new, but the solutions will need to be.

Each borough has similar and very different challenges facing their communities. This presents a challenge for us but also the opportunity to draw synergies and be progressive to solve local and national issues. We hope that the reception will provide the opportunity to discuss ‘The Changing World of Work’ and its impact on SMEs.

In addition, we will also be electing the NE London Fabian Executive Committee. There are six positions available, Chair, Vice-Chair x3, Treasurer and the Secretary. If you're interested in putting your name for forwards please get in contact with me via NathanAshley88@gmail.com by 25 January 2018 (NB:Positions are only open to paid members of the Fabian Society. They must also be a resident of either Enfield, Waltham Forest, Haringey or Hackney. Each chair position must also represent one of these boroughs e.g. Chair: Enfield, Vice-Chair: Hackney, Waltham Forest and Haringey).

We really hope you will be able to attend and celebrate the official launch and support us with our ambitions of increasing the membership and tackling some of the most pressing policy challenges facing London and the UK.

Please RSVP registering at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Nathan Ashley
