The annual Jim Rose Lecture is an evening devoted to the work and memory of Jim Rose, co-founder of the Runnymede Trust in 1968. From then until his death in 1999, Jim Rose's contribution and devotion to racial justice and civil rights was unwavering and unbroken.
This year’s Jim Rose Lecture is titled ‘Tackling Discrimination: football, media and the pursuit of equality’ and will be delivered by Football Association Chairman Greg Dyke.
Migration is part of the UK's history. Let's celebrate it!
This learning resource looks at migration, history and cultural identity and is designed for all children and young people.
The fun-to-use videos, audio recordings and interactive timeline will bring discussions about migration history to life, encouraging students to think about their own families’ journeys.
Runnymede has launched a news website called Race Card, offering you the latest comment and analysis on race equality stories.
Race Card provides a space where a diverse set of voices can speak honestly about race. It is produced by a mixture of journalists, bloggers, politicians and academics. Race Card equips you with analysis and data to tackle enduring racial inequality in the UK.
Our Runnymede lecture is being held in partnership with London Metropolitan University, allowing us to engage with a wider audience at an institution that actively promotes values of social justice and increased access for all.
We are delighted that this year’s speaker will be Iqbal Wahhab OBE FRSA, entitled ‘How Businesses Can Deliver Greater Good than Governments’
