Taking down walls to build bridges – a joint staff network event for all staff




Speakers: Alison Bond - Insight into Hate Crime, Lydia Pell - Mental Health in 2016 , Daniel Luther - Exploring prejudice with foundation in religion, Lia Shimada - An insight into lived experience of reconciliation and building bridges following conflict

We live and work in one of the world’s most welcoming cities, demonstrating the benefits that diverse and cohesive communities can make. To maintain this we need to tackle the challenges and issues experienced by some of City’s members who come to study, work and visit the University.

Following Brexit hate crimes committed increased by 58% in the UK. This joint, City Staff Networks event explores Hate Crimes and asks what can we as individuals do to promote London’s fresh, diverse and welcoming outlook? How do we support staff and students who are feeling vulnerable at this time?

If Hate crimes are not tackled it can lead to isolation and victimisation of individuals and vulnerable groups, along with the polarisation of communities. All managers, staff and students are welcome to this event that promotes ‘One City.’

This event also features 'Bystander action' - personal tools for taking action.
