WorkPride 2023: WorkPride - Community-in-Focus Panels for Ethnicity: Black

Part of our Community-In-Focus talks, this panel will explore the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in the Black community. Join us as our panellists discuss their lives, growing up, challenges within their communities and intersectionality whilst also sharing with us lessons on how we can be better allies, and have a better appreciation of cultures and backgrounds other than our own.
