Break the Bias – The Conversation Continues in Black History Month and the Legacy of the Commonwealth Games

Region: Europe
12 October 2022
Squire Patton Boggs
Rutland House, 148 Edmund Street
Birmingham, B3 2JR

We are delighted to invite you to continue the conversation we started at our International Women’s Day 2022 breakfast in March, where we were joined by some of the region’s leading organisations and collectively promised to #BreaktheBias.

We want to help progress the actions we discussed at our last event, but also, in Black History Month and following the Commonwealth Games, take the conversation wider. We will consider the impact of the “entanglement of bias”, i.e. the intersections between biases such as those between gender and race, as well as class, sexuality, disability and/or age. We will also discuss whether the legacy of the Commonwealth Games and the Lionesses’ Euros win will help to “break the bias” in sport, and how other sectors might learn from those achievements.
