Inclusion Week runs from 26 September until 2 October and there will be a LOT going on in and around Leeds.
On Tuesday 26th September, Leeds City Council is hosting ‘Innovation through diversity’, a conference to better understand and explore opportunities of being a more culturally diverse city.
From 1 -4.30pm at Leeds Civic Hall, speakers will include Sharon Watson, Artistic Director of Phoenix Dance Theatre & Independent Chair of Leeds 2023 European Capital of Culture bid, Cllr Alison Lowe and Alan Gay of Leeds City Council and Adie Platts from AJP Technologies. They will all share examples of innovation through diversity gained from organisations and communities in which they live and work.
You will also hear real life experiences from our Living Library whose stories will touch on different aspects of diversity and inclusion in Leeds.
