Actions and Detail Panel
Race and Ethnicity In Health, Social Care and the Academy
Mon 13 March 2017, 17:00 – 20:00 GMT
Dear White People is a gently funny take on contemporary racism in an American university campus, and the experience of students in this environment.
For this special film and discussion night, the film acts as a catalyst for a panel discussion about race, ethnicity, inclusion and the politics of higher education within the UK context with a specific focus on health and social care.
Given the attainment gap in higher education associated with racial and ethnic background, the multi-ethnic nature of both providers and receivers of health and social care, and the current politicisation of race and ethnicity within the UK, such conversations are both topical and vital.
We are delighted that the panel for this evening includes Lemn Sissay, Benjamin Zephaniah and Mariann Rand-Weaver. All three are fantastic speakers with perspectives on life to make us all think about how we contribute to the wider environment in which we live.
The panelists will share their view of the film but also engage in a discussion with the audience about the relevance for Brunel clinical science students and higher education more generally.
Not only is there free pizza, but this evening promises to be something different and quite special in the Clinical Sciences calendar. We would encourage you all to register and come to watch, listen and join in the discussion.
