Hear Our Stories

Film screening and panel discussion

Babbasa Dec 18
Tue 27 November 2018,

Babbasa, in collaboration with the award-winning Plimsoll Productions, Watershed and Festival of Ideas, invite you for an evening of stories, discussion and networking.

Following the screening of a short film that chronicles the success and challenges of business people and entrepreneurs of ethnic minority background, a panel – which includes Bristol Lord-Lieutenant Peaches Golding, entrepreneur Michael Jenkins, Geneco CEO Mohammed Saddiq and director of Black South West Network Sado Jirde – discusses whether positive action really does foster diversity and inclusion.

The event is part of Babbasa’s #HearOurStories programme of activities that aims to inspire hope by sharing powerful stories of people often disadvantaged in society. The film reinforces the need for greater representation and access to equal opportunity in the city of Bristol.
