Event Details

With the Prime Minister calling a general election the media is as saturated with political coverage as the PM's suit was with rain, after his mid-downpour Downing Street announcement. And let's not talk about his speech being drowned out by the music in the background.

While the next few weeks will be packed with pledges around the economy and other areas of public policy, the ballot results will finally give some clarity for businesses, after a year of change and uncertainty surrounding the date of the election.

But what will the next five years look like in the areas of equality, diversity and inclusion?

Join us as we dust down our crystal ball and discuss the main developments which will affect the housing sector post-election. Will there be new equality legislation? A focus on tackling institutional biases? Is it going to be all about health and employment disparities or does housing come into this? Or after all this, are we going to have more of the same or even go backwards?
