Tracks, Trails and Threads: Courageous Leadership in a Fractured World
January 12 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Leaders and professionals across sectors will come together at five venues in the UK and online on 21 March 2024 for a ground-breaking international conference on anti-racism.
Organised by the influential Black Leadership Group,Tracks, Trails and Threads: Courageous Leadership in a Fractured World will be a unique, high-profile hybrid event held on the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Sponsored by Google for Education, participants will join virtually and at venues in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast to discuss and shape actions for achieving an anti-racist society and ethnic equity for all.
Through a thought-provoking blend of tracks, trails and threads, keynotes, provocations, roundtable conversations, case studies, collaborative research and calls to action, the conference will:
· Explore the role and imperative of courageous leadership in the fight for an anti-racist world
· Showcase the trailblazers that are challenging the status quo, by pushing boundaries with initiatives on anti-racism that are making a difference
· Learn how system leaders are proactively applying the Black Leadership Group’s own 10-point plan to embed an anti-racist culture
· Discover how educational leaders are invested in co-creation using the anti-racist principles and tools developed to galvanise the energy and talent of teachers, students, and communities
· Provide opportunities to consider the applicability of the anti-racist lens within different global contexts
· Examine the role of artificial intelligence applications in profiling bias and racial prejudice in recruitment, promotion and training
The conference is aimed at ‘leaders and practitioners from all levels and backgrounds who share a desire to heal division, eliminate racism and advance anti-racism to create and sustain a more equitable society’, says the Black Leadership Group. It is anticipated that the event will draw individuals and organisations in public and private, civil society, specialist sectors such as education, health and creative, human resource professionals, researchers, decision-makers, influencers and thought leaders.
