Ella Baker School in conversation with Jane Holgate, discussing her book: 'Arise. Power, Strategy and Union Resurgence'

Start: Tuesday, October 12, 2021 7:00 PM British Summer Time (GMT+01:00)

End: Tuesday, October 12, 2021 9:00 PM British Summer Time (GMT+01:00)

We are delighted to announce that we will be in conversation  with Jane Holgate,  top-class scholar, union educator and activist discussing her book: 'Arise. Power, Strategy and Union Resurgence.

Drawing on history and case studies of unions developing and using power effectively, this book offers strategies for moving beyond the pessimism that prevails in much of today's union movement. By placing power analysis back at the heart of workers' struggle, Jane shows us that transformational change is not only possible, but within reach.

We will be joined by an amazing panel chaired by Michael McNeil (national official at UCU):

  • Heather Blakey, Unite Community Co-ordinator
  • David (DBH) Braniff-Herbert; equality organiser at NEU
  • Heather Connolly, Associate Professor of Industrial Relations
  • Sarah Woolley, General Secretary BFAWU
  • Wilf Sullivan, TUC Race Equality Officer

And, if you sign up we will give you a discount code which will save you 30% off the paperback edition of the book!

The session is live, participatory and will be a mix of panel discussions and break out rooms.

Takes place over ZOOM.
