Join us for an evening with June Sarpong MBE, discussing her book, Diversify.
In Diversify, June Sarpong MBE puts the spotlight on six marginalised groups, including women, those living with disabilities, and the non-cis community, and reveals how a lack of inclusivity limits our economy, our society, and us as individuals.
With never-before-published research from Oxford University and inspiring stories from around the globe, Diversify presents six simple and revolutionary steps to overcoming prejudice and reaping the huge rewards – as well as an unshakeable case for change.
Drawing on new case studies – from shared parental leave, to flexible teaching methods, and shared accommodation for pensioners and students – and with hard statistics, Diversify demonstrates how by changing our approach, we can reach our maximum potential, lessen the pressure on the state, and solve some of the most stubborn challenges we face as a society.
June Sarpong MBE has enjoyed a 15-year career which has already seen her become one of the most recognizable faces of British television. She has interviewed everyone – from Nelson Mandela to Tony Blair to 50 Cent. She's also the co-founder of the WIE Network (Women: Inspiration and Enterprise), and of the DNA Summit (Decide Now Act). June Sarpong was awarded an MBE for her services to broadcasting, philanthropy and charity, making her among one of the youngest people to receive an MBE.
"We are all guilty of “Otherizing” and excluding people who seem different to us, and if unchecked the results can be catastrophic. In Diversify I will be exploring exclusion in its many forms including discrimination by age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic background, religion or sexual orientation."
