A diverse and inclusive community where all are welcomed has been an ever present aspiration for Quakers. This conference aims to equip Friends to make it a reality, offering key note speeches, workshops, opportunities for informal discussion and all age worship, all as discreet standalone sessions. We will explore diversity in a variety of forms, including race and ethnicity, class, age, sexuality and gender, in an intersectional way. Prepare to be challenged and inspired.

We welcome your courageous participation.
