Black Lives Matter – Listening Event

CEO and Senior Independent Board Director to host Listening Event for Black Fencing Community

As part of a wider consultation process,  BF has scheduled the first of a series of ‘listening events’ to give the opportunity to members of the black fencing community in the UK to share their experiences, thoughts and views directly with senior leadership in BF including Georgina Usher (CEO) and Janet Campbell (Senior Independent Director on the British Fencing Board).

The first event will be held on 2nd July at 4pm and members of our black community are invited to register their interest here. (If you are interested in attending an event but unable to make the first date please select one of the TBC sessions on the registration form).

This listening and developing of a better understanding is a vital first step as we explore how BF can take meaningful action in this space. It will also enable us to review and enhance the action plan that is being developed following the meeting held with British black athletes.

Over time it is the intention for BF to extend these listening events to other areas where a better understanding of the personal experiences of members of our community will enable us to improve the work that we do. To that end we have also provided an option to register for a wider BAME listening event for BAME members that would like to contribute ideas, views and share their experiences with us.
