CoDE are holding a major two-day conference in Manchester to discuss the outcomes of its first four years of work.
The ambitious intention of the conference is to bring a wide range of constituencies into dialogue – the public, policy makers, NGOs, politicians, the media and academics – around our emerging findings on the patterning and drivers of ethnic inequalities across a range of domains.
The conference will consist of a mix of activities:
Plenary presentations from high profile figures in the field;
Themed sessions summarising the key findings and policy implications of our research (organised around topics such as Employment and education, Migration, place and community, Health and wellbeing, Racisms, Politics and political representation);
Workshops to discuss and debate the state of race/ethnicity in the UK in the light of our research;
Question panel style discussions, with panels comprised of experts from a range of fields;
Spoken word and graphic artists.
- Please note the venue is fully accessible, and there will be a designated prayer space. Should you have any other specific requirements, accessibility needs or other specific requests please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 16 June.
