Anti-black Racism at Work
- 29th Oct '20 11.00 am – 1.00 pm
This workshop will explore the experience of anti-black racism in the workplace with the focus on the type of racism that is not overt but more obscure in its nature. Despite the illegality of overt anti-black racism in the UK, the equally pernicious but more subtle phenomenon of covert racism appears to persist. Drawing on research, the workshop will explore how some black people negotiate the challenge of this type of anti-black racism in the workplace.
This is a 2-hour online workshop via zoom. Registrants will be emailed a link to join.
