Minority Ethnic Group and Allies Network (MEGA) are excited to hold ‘Thinking Outside The Box – Cultivating The Shift’. Our showcase event as part of Black History Month 2022 event will be held in person, as well as live streamed.

Guest speakers include:

Rianna Scipio, the UK’s first black weather presenter, and now International Authenticity and Relationship Consultant.

Ballaz in The Middle, two ex-professional NFL football players,

Discussion will be centred around equality diversity and inclusion, whilst raising the awareness of important topics such as; good mental health, wellbeing, resilience, mentoring and outreach.

At Surrey County Council, whilst celebrating the achievements, the pride, the history, and the rich diversity of the Black African and the Caribbean community during the month of October, we will also be focusing on the human element transcending colour, race and ethnicity.

This ties in quite nicely with the national theme of Black History Month, this year:

“Time for Change: Action Not Words.’ To get to a better tomorrow, we can’t just focus on the past.

“The past is in the past. We can acknowledge and learn from it, but to improve the future, we need action, not words. We need to come together around a shared common goal to achieve a better world for everyone.”

Black History Month, October 2022

In person tickets are limited, more tickets will be released.

We want this event to be inclusive and accessible. Deaf colleagues will be able to attend the event in-person and BSL interpreters will be available.
