How should Conservatives talk about race?

A webinar, at the virtual Conservative Party Conference, to explore the Conservative response to the shifting politics of race – in the year of Black Lives Matter protests and when Covid-19 highlighted the impact of ethnic disparities in the UK. Co-hosted with Conservatives Against Racism for Equality (CARFE), our panel discusses:

– How should Conservatives talk about race?
– Getting beyond “BAME”: what happens next?
– How can the party compete for ethnic minority votes?

Panellists include:
Siobhan Aarons – Co-chair of Conservatives Against Racism for Equality
Peter Gibson MP – MP for Darlington and Chair of the APPG on Social Integration
Andrew Boff – Member of the London Assembly
Sunder Katwala (Chair) – Director of British Future
