Jacqueline Winstanley, CEO and Founder of Universal Inclusion, is presenting during a Diversity and Entrepreneurship Workshop organised by the Birkbeck Centre for Innovation Management (CIMR) on March 17 2021.
The workshop contributes to the debate on how the UK could better support innovation and entrepreneurship in BAME and disabled groups. Jacqueline's presentation focuses on Inclusive entrepreneurship – Removing the conflict between policy intent and administration.
Jacqueline is also a speaker on a panel discussion looking at 'What have we learned about innovation/entrepreneurial opportunities for BAME and disabled entrepreneurs?'.
The discussion, which is chaired by Tim Vorley of Oxford Brookes University, also includes panel speakers Tom Coogan form Nottingham University, Beldina Owalla, Ning Baines from De Montfort University, Lexi Mills from Shift6 Global and Monder Ram from Aston University. It forms part of the dissemination programme of research supported by the Regional Studies Association Fellowship Grant (FeRSA) ‘Addressing regional inequalities in innovation opportunities for BAME and disabled groups’ led by Helen Lawton Smith. Looking in particular at these two groups, it maps out the provision of support for these under-represented and under-utilised entrepreneurs, especially since the lack of support for diversity in entrepreneurship and innovation is currently receiving considerable attention in policy debates.
Participation is free with prior registration required by 5pm on Tuesday 16 March, 2021.
