20 April 2022 at 3:00 pm (CEST): Prof. Monder Ram: "Critical engagement in diversity and entrepreneurship: Insights from the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship"

The seismic effects of COVID-19, Black Lives Matter and Brexit have exposed endemic racial inequalities in the UK. Policy responses are mixed but encouraging entrepreneurship amongst ethnic minority communities is likely to form part of the solution. For 20 years, the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) has operated at the intersection of debates on inequality and enterprise, and worked with practitioners to ‘make a difference’. CREME’s modus operandi is to promote change with practitioners whilst pursuing theoretically informed research. This talk presents insights from the many shades of engagement that characterise CREME’s work—from stakeholder consultation on conventional research projects to the creation of new ventures to support for migrant businesses.
