Is equality, diversity and human rights yesterday's debate?

This theme will be considered at Liverpool John Moores University's Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Conference on 4 November 2015 where Cloisters' Robin Allen QC will be keynote speaker.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is a fast changing scene and this popular event will review the past five years since the Equality Act 2010 came into force and the impact it has had, both positive and negative, on diversity, equality, and community cohesion.  It will consider what positive changes could be made for the future in the field of higher education.

LJMU Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive will open the event which in the past has brought together Directors and Managers from public, private, voluntary and Higher Education sectors; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion specialists and practitioners; and offices responsible for student support and academic quality.

The University Executive Director to the Vice Chancellor on Strategic Initiatives, Professor Phil Vickerman will coordinate the question and answer times. The conference will be chaired by Sir Bert Massie LJMU Governor and Equality Champion.

Location: Holiday Inn Liverpool.
