South East Leadership Academy

Black History Month October 2021

Call to action: Identity and Me

Throughout October our team is coordinating activity around race for Black History month 2021 and we are looking to hear your voice.

For the week commencing the 4th October we will be exploring what race and health mean to the NHS in its pursuit of racial equity and justice. Recognising that the starting point for change is with me.

We are looking for submissions of video recordings of you talking about who you are and how you interact with the topic of race and racial justice. Think about where you are now on your journey on race, how did you react to the events over the last 2 years (Black Lives Matter, COVID-19 pandemic) and what are you doing at work to support equality.

What to do next:

  1. Record your thoughts and send your video [email protected] by COP 20th September 2021, please include your name and job title in the body of the email.
  2. In submitting your video you are providing the South East Leadership Academy with permission to upload your video onto our website

Practical tips:

  • Videos should be between 2-3 minutes long and they do not need to be professionally recorded. Tablet, phone or laptop recordings are all acceptable.
  • Please submit videos to us in MP/MOV/WMV format.

We look forward to receiving your videos. If you have any questions please contact our team on [email protected].
