Pan-London Black and Minority Ethnic Network

CRP was honoured to join in with 300 other attendees from London and other UK cities for this second virtual meeting of the BAME Network on 22nd July 2020, organised by Serena Simon on behalf of Westminster City Council and its Chief Executive Stuart Love.

The meeting was about “Communicating Effectively with Communities – Leading through Crisis”. An impressive array of passionate external speakers highlighted the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 on BAME communities, and outlined the opportunities we now have to create a more positive future for all of our communities.

The meeting focused on the need to start actions NOW. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “If you do nothing, there will be no result.” CRP looks forward to making an active contribution to the Economic Growth and Enterprise Support Working Group that it has signed up to. Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate. The responsibility to create positive change lies with all of us. Together we can make a difference.
