Online - How Did we all Become so Divided, and What do we do About it?
@
As a society, we have become disconnected -  with most of us spending less and less time with people who are different (as defined by age, race, or class, earning power or education). 

But the more time we spend with people unlike ourselves, the more understanding, tolerant and friendly we become. Join Jon Yates, Executive Director of the Youth Endowment Fund and author of, 'Fractured: Why Our Societies Are Coming Apart and How We Put Them Back Together Again' and Nesta CEO Ravi Gurumurthy as they explore how the pandemic has created an unprecedented opportunity for us to come together.

Online - Enabling Equity in Education: Strategies to remove the effect of racism
@
Participants will have an opportunity to hear from three inspiring practitioners who are committed to raising awareness of the impacts of the adverse childhood experience (ACE) of racism upon children and young people in educational settings.
We will be able to reflect upon our experiences in education, our perceptions and preconceptions and the ways we relate to one another. The connection between ACEs, racism and the 4 As of education: Attachment, Attendance, Attainment and Affiliation will also be addressed as well as practical trauma-informed and antiracist steps to create positive changes.

Online - Business Fights Poverty Global Summit 2021 - Leadership
@
The world faces unprecedented convergence of social and environmental challenges. COVID-19 continues to impact the lives, livelihoods and access to learning of the most vulnerable people. Unless action is taken now, these impacts will be long-lasting. At the same time, it is recognised that urgent action on climate change must put people at the centre of efforts on mitigation and adaptation. The transition to a green economy must also be a just one.

Across these challenges, the impacts reflect deep-seated inequities - due to factors including gender, race, and income. COVID-19 has pushed back progress on gender equity and poverty reduction, and climate change is doing the same. People from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds face disproportionate barriers.

While the challenges are unprecedented, so too are the opportunities to tackle them collaboratively. Business is now seen as a key partner, alongside government and civil society.  Employees, customers, stakeholders and shareholders, believe business must take a stand on social and environmental issues. The focus is now on how we can collaborate - to tackle both rapid onset challenges and deeper systemic issues.

Join us for a week of insight and inspiration. We invite you to join us for a week, highly interactive event brings together voices and insights from across the globe, from business, NGOs, academia and government - to share the latest thinking on the nature of the challenges we face, and the nature of the solutions that are needed. Join us to access the very latest thinking so that you can increase the impact of your efforts.
