4theRegion is organising this year’s Regional Race Equality & Social Justice Conference, in partnership with Race Council Cymru, to address the challenge facing all organisations and businesses in Wales, as well as BAME young people and professionals:  How do we get more BAME people into senior roles in business and society?

We’ll be hearing from a range of speakers to help us all understand the challenge and what we can do to address it within our own organisations; a youth panel talking about their own experiences; and an inspiring panel of young BAME leaders from across the region.  If you would like to speak, or know someone who might, please let us know!

The “Everyone Matters” conference will bring together all those with an interest in social justice and race equality, to discuss the challenges facing our region, the opportunities we should be grasping, and what we can all do to ensure South West Wales is a safer, more equal, healthier and more cohesive regional economy where everyone’s well-being really matters.  The event takes place at the Grand Theatre in Swansea on 9th October, and businesses are invited to attend, exhibit and sponsor.

Bringing Together All Those Who Want Race Equality & Social Justice


In 2018, the first Regional Race Equality Conference brought together over 150 people, united in their determination to ensure South West Wales is a welcoming, safe and diverse place to live for people from all backgrounds.  It was an exciting day featuring inspiring speakers and plenty of discussion.

This year’s event is set to be bigger and better!
