Promoting Equity within the City – 19 October 2021

On Tuesday 19th October the Equality Committee held a face-to-face event in the hall titled ‘Promoting Equity within the City – a Diversity in the City’. 

A number of our members and guests attended what proved to be an insightful evening ‘Promoting Equity within the City’ during Global Diversity Awareness month  We were be joined by our new Master, Alistair Fulton, as well as Past Master Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE who supported our event (via video).  Our main speaker was Common Councillor Shravan Joshi who has been awarded his MBE for his diversity activities in the City.

The event was also an opportunity for members to invite those outside of the Livery to encourage a wider and more diverse participation and membership within WCIT.  It was a good opportunity to discover more about the Livery, its traditions and ethos, as well as to understand how prospective members could be involved in all aspects of the four pillars of the Company (Education, Industry, Charity and Fellowship).
