Unfortunately we are not permitted to release the recording of the event afterwards, in case you are late or unable to attend. While this is a wonderful opportunity for our community, this particular event is ‘ephemeral’ in nature.

We are so glad you can join this important conversation. This event is the start of our journey towards dismantling racism and there will be many opportunities throughout the year to continue learning and taking active steps towards antiracism.
