The past few weeks have seen people taking to social media and the streets in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. From incidents of police brutality to the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on the BAME community, the inequality in our society has been brought into the spotlight.

Charlotte Williams is a consultant and influencer who founded SevenSix agency, aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion within marketing. In this talk she will share advice on how we can all support black people in this moment and going forward and how we can all work to effect change, no matter our role.
