Celebrating Black Excellence
The DCU Equality, Diversity and Inclusion unit, in collaboration with the DCU Centre of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion, will host a virtual event in celebration of Black History Month 2021 at 1pm on Tuesday 26th October 2021. Titled ‘Celebrating Black Excellence’, Linda Keitasha from the Centre of Excellence will be in conversation with Mr. Bashir Otukoya, Assistant Professor in the School of Law and Government.
Through the sharing of Bashir’s personal anecdotes and lived experiences, this conversation will celebrate black excellence by exploring what black history month means in the Irish context, the valuable contributions the black community makes in our workplace, and some of the barriers faced by the black community in employment. The conversation will also touch on the importance of allyship in overcoming these challenges, our progress in combating racism in Ireland, and aspirations for a truly inclusive workplace by looking to the future.
