We are very delighted to announce that David Isaac CBE, recently appointed Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has agreed to be our guest speaker.

David will be speaking on the subject of “the role of the Equality and Human Rights Commission in a changing environment” and will be happy to take questions afterwards - it promises to be a fascinating talk.

David is a partner at law firm Pinsent Masons and was previously Chair of Stonewall from 2003 to 2012.  He is also Chair of Modern Art Oxford, a Director of the Big Lottery Fund and a Trustee of 14-18 Now.  David was awarded a CBE in the 2011 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to equality and diversity.  You can read his recent blogs (on supporting pregnant women and new mothers, standing up against race hate, EU referendum)here.

It will help us very much in planning numbers of ballot papers and glasses of wine if you will let us know if you are able (or unable) to attend.  Please RSVP to[email protected].

Non-members are welcome to attend this event but only DLA members will be eligible to vote (NB one vote only per membership).

Wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be provided.
