Join us in the Library to hear June Sarpong in conversation with Emma Gannon, discussing the ideas and arguments in her new book Diversify.
On the evening of 18th October, we will be welcoming broadcaster, philanthropist, Prince's Trust ambassador and campaigner, June Sarpong MBE, to the YCN Library. June will be in conversation with fellow broadcaster and multi-hyphenist Emma Gannon, exploring ideas from June's recently published book Diversify.
June has enjoyed a 20-year media career – from hosting 2005’s major Make Poverty History event in Trafalgar Square and Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park, through to regular appearances on Sky News and Loose Women. She's also campaigned for The One and Product Red, worked with Prince Charles HRH for the Prince's Trust for over 10 years and co-founded the WIE Network (Women:Inspiration & Enterprise), a conference in support of female excellence at which the likes of Sarah Brown, Melinda Gates, Arianna Huffington and Queen Rania have spoken.
In Diversify, June makes the case for the social, moral and economic benefits of diversity — and explores the limitations caused by social division. June worked with Nuffield College, Oxford to address the effects of social stereotyping; she draws from personal anecdotes and success stories to encourage readers to confront, challenge and conquer discriminative views.
