Diversity and the City II (ext event)

Description: Diversity and The City II notes that Leicester is celebrated for its diversity and multiculturalism, and asks, But, what does this really mean?

What are the demographics like in Leicester? What do the demographics say about poverty, (in)equality, access (or barriers) to services, (un)employment, opportunities (or the lack of opportunities), the criminal justice system and other systems? Do key institutions’ employment patterns reflect the city’s demographics? If not, why is this?

Responding to these and related questions, will be:

‚óŹ Paula Serafini, CAMEo, University of Leicester
‚óŹ Mpazi Siame, Leicester Fire and Rescue Service
‚óŹ Camille London Miyo, Leicester National Education Union
‚óŹ Chris Hall, De Montfort University
‚óŹ Monica Hingorani and Ruth Rigby, Leicester Aging Together, and
‚óŹ a representative from the business sector.

The speakers will also take part in a discussion and Q&A session with all present.

Diversity and The City II will be chaired by Dr Katy Bennett, Associate Professor in Human Geography at the University of Leicester.
