Rosa Parks Symposium 2017

Rosa Parks. Tuesday 5 December 2017
Great Hall, Richmond Building, University of Bradford - 9:00-14:00

2017 will be the 13th Anniversary of the Symposium. This year’s symposium will explore the consequences of the current political and social climate including the negative rhetoric of the Brexit debate and the subsequent sharp rise in hate crime.

It will discuss our individual, organisational and societal responsibilities in promoting inclusion, respect and a compassionate way of working and living together. 

Your voice is needed in the promotion of diversity, inclusion and respect in today’s global instability.  Be courageous, come let’s fight hate and promote a sense of belonging for ALL!
