CEO and Board Director to host Listening Event for members of the BF community from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
As part of BF’s series of listening events, the topic of the July Diversity session gives the opportunity to members of the fencing community in the UK from ethnically diverse backgrounds 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 event will be held on July 6th at 6 pm. Members of our diverse community are invited to register their interest here.
Diversity Listening Events are scheduled throughout the year and focus on areas where a better understanding of the personal experiences of members of our community will enable us to improve the work that we do. This listening and development of a better understanding are vital and the session is designed to provide a safe space for discussion, observations and requests. It will also enable us to anticipate any action plan that may be developed following the meeting.
Further sessions on different topics are announced throughout the year. We welcome constructive participation from members within the specific communities discussed in the event. As the event is for these members to contribute ideas, views and share their experiences with us, we encourage active participation. The event will not be recorded but outcomes, action plans and important points will be shared in a summary news post after the event.
BF members from our community from diverse ethnic backgrounds can register to join the session here.
