About this event

Join the fourth BAME Pan-London conference on ‘Vaccines, Community Testing & The Future of Young People'.

Seasoned professionals will explore, why BAME communities are hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccine; possible solutions to the problem and the ways organisations and authorities can establish a trusting relationship with the BAME community.

There will also be a deep dive into the experiences of young people from BAME backgrounds, and the challenges they have faced over the course of the pandemic.

Line up include:

  • Sir William Atkinson, former Executive Head of Phoenix High School
  • Dr Tolullah Oni, Urban epidemiologist at the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge
  • Imam Qari Asim, Senior Imam of Makkah Mosque Leeds and Chair of the Mosques & Imams National Advisory Board
  • Jabeer Butt, Chief Executive of the Race Equality Foundation

And many more!

2 days before the event, an email/teams invite will be circulated to all participants.
