What’s on offer?

To open the event, we will present key findings from a research project that explored racial inequalities and the pandemic, carried out by Co-POWeR - Consortium on Practices of Wellbeing & Resilience in Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic Families & Communities. 

We will then show a film made as part of this project titled "Belonging: Tiger Bay Boxing Club".

Participants will then be invited to join us for a discussion about what we can learn from the film and take back to workplaces and schools. 

What’s it about?
