Social Cohesion Dialogue to Discuss How Different Racial Groups Can Unite to Boost the Economy of the City
 
The third instalment of a series of dialogues, in the run-up to the 3rd Social Cohesion Conference, will unpack how a united and collaborative effort between business people of different racial groups (particularly Black and Indian) can positively contribute to the economy of the Municipality.
 
The dialogue will seek to address one of the main challenges in the City; which is unlocking the potential of all participants in order to generate broader economic benefits.
 
The hard-hitting, straight-talk dialogues are a build-up to the 3rd Social Cohesion Conference scheduled to take place at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre from 29 to 31 May 2017.
 
Esteemed leaders in the business sector including Gugu Xaba, Moses Tembe, Jonathan Annipen and Ashwin Trikamjee will lead the discussion at the dialogue, tackling issues head-on. These include the hindrances to achieving social cohesion between business people of different racial groups, how these can be overcome and how the playing fields can be levelled so that all participants receive equal economic opportunities for the greater benefit of the City.
 
Members of the media are invited to attend.
