Whereas equal rights for all have been enshrined in law for a long time now, empirical evidence clearly shows certain groups continue to lag behind others.

Whereas some inequality is to be expected in any social order, when particular inequalities persist over generations and continue to manifest themselves along racial, gender or class lines, the problem is clearly deep-rooted and systemic.

That such inequalities exist is now established beyond doubt, but how they are created and reproduced on an everyday basis in our workplaces is less clear.

Join Dr Kamal Munir as he will show how racial inequality is reproduced in organisations and why it continues to escape scrutiny, and how we can create healthier, more egalitarian organisations.

A recording of this session is now available to view on YouTube.
