The Race Equality Foundation are hosting a webinar focused on addressing racial inequity in COVID-19 recovery and older people.
As part of the Foundation’s Race Equity Collaborative project, this is the first of two webinars seeking to influence the COVID-19 recovery plan for older people. You can find more information on the project on the Race Equality Foundation’s website.
The event in the words of the organisers:
As we approach the ‘opening up’ of another lockdown and look towards recovery, how will the inequality that has been experienced by so many, especially black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, be addressed?
The Race Equity Collaborative project will build a narrative across seven collaborative areas focused on solutions regarding health and race inequalities. This is the first of two webinars seeking to influence the Covid-19 recovery plans for older people.
Chaired by Tracey Bignall, Senior Policy and Practice Officer at Race Equality Foundation
Commissioned briefing paper presented by Dr Dharmi Kapadia, University of Manchester
This webinar on older people will:
• Present evidence about the inequalities experienced by black, Asian and minority ethnic older people during the pandemic.
• Hear different perspectives about the challenges faced by older people from these backgrounds.
• Discuss and debate issues for policy makers to consider to ensure they address race and health inequalities experienced by black, Asian and minority ethnic older people.
Who should attend?
This event is of interest to policy makers, academics, practitioners across the voluntary and statutory sector, working to support black, Asian and minority ethnic older people, and individuals from these communities.
