BME Leadership Network Lunch

14 Jun 2023
Exchange 11

The BME Leadership Network is hosting a lunch for network members. Special guests football legend, John Barnes MBE, author of ‘The uncomfortable truth about racism’, and Dr Adam Rutherford, renowned geneticist and author of ‘How to argue with a racist’, will discuss how racism was central to creation of the scientific method and modern medicine; the impact of racism on 75 years of the NHS; and why we must never forget race is the product of racism: a social construct, not our biological inheritance. The session will also include a Q&A.

Due to room capacity, priority will be given to members of the BME Leadership Network, there will also be places for non-members of the network on a first-come first-served basis.
