Our regional representative in Manchester, Nazia Khan, held a very successful event on Wednesday, 18th April at the offices of the EHRC.  Speakers included Stephen Lodge, Principal (Legal) at the EHRC and James Betts of Simpson Millar Solicitors.


There were three topics for discussion:


  • race discrimination in education: Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children;
  • pregnancy and maternity discrimination in employment; and
  • Brexit: impact on equality.



The first topic: discrimination in education generated a good deal of interest as most attendees had an employment background. The discussion on Brexit was more academic, focussing on the steps the EHRC is making to try and preserve equality rights
