The Exchange

Exchanging ideas, raising awareness and addressing issues that are often underrepresented in the public arena and in academic research.

The Stephen Lawrence Research Centre (SLRC) are taking the conversation to a whole new level with The Exchange. This new webinar series will bring together a range of guest speakers in an inclusive space to exchange ideas, raise awareness and address issues and perspectives that are often underrepresented in the public arena and in academic research.

“Coronavirus: Black and Asian ethnic groups up to twice as likely to die with COVID-19” – Public Health England.
