All those interested in practice development in health, education and social care are welcome at this free learning together event hosted by FREDA: Forum for Race Equality and Diversity Awareness.
This exciting event will bring together a wide-range of professionals from across the city to discuss LGBT+ intersectionalities and 'proving your identity' through a series of interactive group discussions with input on a range of topics.
