Disabilities Collaborative

June 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:45 pm | Free

A webinar focused on addressing racial inequity in Covid-19 recovery and disability

About this event

As we approach the ‘opening up’ of another lockdown and look towards recovery, how will the inequality that has been experienced by so many, especially black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, be addressed?

The Race Equity Collaborative project will build a narrative across seven collaborative areas focused on solutions regarding health and race inequalities. This is the first of two webinars seeking to influence the Covid-19 recovery plans for disabled people.

Chaired by Tracey Bignall, Senior Policy and Practice Officer at Race Equality Foundation

Commissioned briefing paper presented by Christine Burke, Director of the Federation of Learning Disabled People

This webinar on disability will:

• Present evidence about the inequalities experienced by black, Asian and minority communities during the pandemic.

• Hear different perspectives about the challenges faced by people from these backgrounds.

• Discuss and debate issues for policy makers to consider to ensure they address race and health inequalities experienced by disabled black and minority ethnic people.

Who should attend?

This event is of interest to policy makers, academics, practitioners across the voluntary and statutory sector, working to support black, Asian and minority ethnic families, and individuals from these communities.

Further information about the project is available on the webpage and follow us on twitter @raceequality
