This panel event is part of xCHANGE festival, Birmingham City University’s month-long celebration of International Women’s Day.
In this event we discuss questions of gender, ethnic diversity and inequality in the creative and cultural industries.
The discussion will be prompted by the report ‘Diversity and Cultural Leadership in the West Midlands‘ by Dr Karen Patel and Dr Annette Naudin. The report highlights the lack of diversity in cultural leadership positions in the region. The authors will be joined by Indy Hunjan, founder of KalaPhool and Cultural Programmes Consultant at the National Trust, and Dr Yemisi Akinbobola, Course Director of MA Global Media Management at Birmingham City University and founder of African Women in the Media. The panellists will provide their perspectives on gender, ethnic diversity and inequality in cultural leadership, and discuss what could be done to encourage greater diversity in the creative and cultural industries in the region.
All are welcome, please register to attend.
