Keynote Speaker – Nova Reid
We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker this year is the incredible Nova Reid. Often described as a force to be reckoned with, Nova is an Activist, TED speaker and author, with a mission to improve racial justice by helping people be the change they want to see by courageously unlearning their racism.
Nova uses her professional background in mental wellbeing to encourage meaningful change from the inside out. She has worked with a variety of organisations including BT and Bloody Good Period and has an online anti-racism academy; Becoming Anti-Racist with Nova Reid
Nova regularly appears on BBC News, Sky News and BBC Radio as a media expert on race and has written for a number of leading publications including Vogue, Stylist Magazine, and Refinery29 UK.
Nova is an accomplished public speaker and was headhunted by TEDx Frankfurt to deliver a talk on microaggressions which was upgraded as a TED talk in 2020. Nova was named one of the Top 100 Black British Women by the Black Magic Network, as part of International Women’s Day 2019 and in November 2020 she was awarded a Precious Award for Social Impact for her work in racial justice.
Nova is a passionate advocate for equity, collective healing and helping people use self-agency to role model change. Her debut book The Good Ally, published by HarperCollins is out now.
“The Good Ally is a powerful trojan horse. While the title calls out to every white person who has wanted to know ‘How can I become a good anti-racist ally?’, it’s content delivers hard-hitting facts, stories, and reflections that remind us that it’s not about being good, it’s about doing better.”
