Society is in a state of transition. The COVID-19 pandemic and the Back Lives Matters movement have shone a light on deep seated inequalities that can no longer be ignored and require fixing now.

We need to transform at pace; frame and solve problems through co-ordinating collective assets across Greater Manchester and the Northern Powerhouse region to create a North where diversity is truly embraced, everyone counts and inequality is no longer tolerated.

There is now a collective enthusiasm for a system reset/ reboot so that the Northern economy does work for everyone. Working with progressive allies such as the Northern Power Women, we are building ecosystems of co-created value that can deliver the systemic change required to make racial and other inequalities history. Our collaborative, combined and intentional activities can and will deliver extraordinary results.

Be part of history in the making by becoming a member.
