The Open University in Wales – Inequalities and Solidarities: The Impact of Covid in Wales

Share this article

This event will look at how inequalities in Wales have been impacted by the pandemic, both in terms of exacerbating existing inequalities but also looking positively at what opportunities and potential has been realised from newly formed solidarities. The event will bring together key stakeholders: researchers, policymakers, relevant partners and beneficiaries from those organisations to reflect on the impact of Covid on inequalities in Wales and also to look forward in the long term and consider future priorities.

In the first part of this event, speakers will present an overview of relevant research from across the OU, within the context of Wales, where possible, covering the experiences of Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, forced migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. The OU’s Dr Jenny Douglas will be presenting on Racial Inequalities in Health, supported by Dr Roiyah Sultas from USW. Professor Marie Gillespie will be presenting on Covid Chronicles from the Margins, and discussing what has been like being an asylum seeker, a refugee or an undocumented person under lockdown.

There will also be the opportunity to find out more about how OpenLearn has been used as an engagement tool to reach out to these groups during the pandemic. Following on from this, there will be a panel discussion formed of key Welsh organisations from the voluntary sector and stakeholders to respond to the research and contextualise what is happening in Wales, followed by Q&A.

The event will be held online as part of the OU in Wales’ OpenTalks programme.
