Cumbria is a complex county. Deprivation sits alongside affluence, heavy industry alongside natural beauty. Black and Brown people represent a disproportionately small part of our population. How is anti-racism relevant in Cumbria? Does it even matter to our all White communities? How can you and your company contribute to an anti-racist county? What does an anti-racist county even mean? How will we know when we get there? What actions can you take? Who else is dealing with inequality in Cumbria? The first Anti Racist Cumbria Summit will answer these questions and more. Blending inspiring speakers, practical workshops, visionary leaders and round table debates with music, food and more. The Anti Racist Cumbria Summit will bring Cumbria together in new ways and lay out a plan for the future, where no one is left behind.
Taking place on the back of Black History Month we expect Cumbria’s leaders and a genuinely diverse audience to attend, to listen and to contribute to the day.
