The programme is devised and chaired by Michael Rubenstein, and we will have a welcome address from Paul Nowak, Deputy General Secretary of the TUC.

While this event will be held online, as per previous years registered delegates will receive a pack (via email/ secure link) with material provided by our speakers.
Please note we will not accept any bookings for this event without payment in advance and we can currently only accept payments for this event online. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Bookings will close on 26 January 2022, but please ensure you book in good time so as not to miss out on this prestigious event. The full event will be subtitled, but please do let us know if you have any other accessibility requirements for this event.
As the event is online, we will have a slightly different format to previous years when we have met in person. All speakers will have a 40-minute slot followed by a 20-minute coffee break. During the break, speakers will remain for 10 minutes to answer questions. Michael Rubenstein will chair all the sessions and will select from submitted questions on the day. The full event will be subtitled.
