Race Equality in Public Life: Networking Dinner
Thursday 21 July 6-9 pm, the Trinity Centre

Bristol is the second most ethnically diverse city in the UK outside of London, yet BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) communities continue to be under-represented in the institutions that govern public life.

At this special event, we invite BME residents to learn more about how they can be the voice of their communities in schools, the judiciary and political office.

Keynote speaker Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, will inspire guests to shape the future of Bristol and guest speakers will share their experiences in the roles of school governor, magistrate, and local councillor. Speeches will be followed by a networking dinner, with an opportunity to ask questions and talk with community members with experience of these roles.

The event is delivered in partnership between Up Our Street and the Race Equality in Education Steering Group.

The event is funded by Up Our Street, National Lottery Awards for All and Bristol City Council.
