About this Event

Speaker's corner 1

Anti-racist posters a showcase by Camden Black workers and allies

Tim Fisher talks about how Black colleagues at Camden Council reflected on the Black experience within social services in 2020.

Event description

Following the death of George Floyd, discussions in Camden have focused on structural and systemic racism, and the need for employers to address the fact that many Black members of staff are grieving.

Talks at Camden Council have highlighted experiences, as well as focusing on improving practices. One outcome from this time is a group of Black colleagues who came together to respond creatively to this important moment.

The group published posters to reflect different aspects of the Black experience within social services, and Tim will share the experience and impact of developing these posters.
