Events Overview 2023

These events are held for everyone and anyone willing to attend, we welcome all to our events.

The events and activities held throughout the month provides a space for Black and Brown communities to come together and learn, share, celebrate, and experience different stories and cultures from the past, present, and future. These events allow individuals to connect with people they may not have had the opportunity to meet before, learn about different life experiences, and challenge their assumptions, prejudices, and stereotypes.

Throughout the month, we increased the visibility and highlighted the diverse business owners, the different organisations, and networks that are in Plymouth as well as supported our partners and our selves to become leaders in addressing diversity issues.
