Following the successful launch of The Radiant and Brighter Communities annual event, sponsored and hosted by RBS in Edinburgh in 2014, this year’s event is being brought to Glasgow!
This event, which presents a great networking opportunity with people from all walks of life, aims to bridge the gap between mainstream organisations, businesses and the local community with particular emphasis to Minority Ethnic Communities. This year we will be celebrating, promoting and encouraging diversity. We believe embracing diversity will unlock the potential within our communities and enable higher value contributions for a socially and economically richer, stronger and healthier Scotland.
Through guest speakers and panel discussions, focus will be on the skills, talents, qualifications and abilities of different groups and communities. We will be asking the question; “Does embracing diversity make our communities and structures healthier and more sustainable?
The event will have Government representation and will also have representation from The Lord Provost’s office.
