Event description

Description

Igniting Change is a monthly discussion series that brings together people from all walks of life for an evening aimed at getting to know the hot topics that impact our society.


The second session of the #IgnitingChange talk series takes place on Thursday 25th May and will focus on Ireland's Cultural Inequality.


What does cultural inequality mean and who is affected by it in Ireland?

These are the questions that will be discussed by our panel of guest speakers both working to promote diversity and having experienced inequality because of their different backgrounds. The event will have a strong focus on the inequalities that migrants face in Ireland, but it will also cover other aspects of inequality, such as social disparity and coming from a disadvantaged background.


How does it work?

  • Each speaker will give a 4 minute 'TEDtalk' to explain an aspect of Cultural Inequality.


  • Afterwards, they will engage in a 30 minute panel discussion to give an in-depth understanding of this topic to the audience, which will be to followed up with questions.


  • The talk will end with a 'World Café' style element where the speakers will join the audience to reflect on the meaning of cultural inequality and to discuss solutions in order to tackle these issues in our community.
