We’re pleased to confirm that we are running five online National Equality Summits this Autumn – giving our underrepresented members the chance to come together to develop their knowledge of workplace organising and campaigning.


All Regions are invited to send attendees who belong to the five equality groups to the summits, with no limit on how many members can attend and no requirement for any level of experience. This learning and development opportunity is open to all members who identify with the relevant group, and members new to campaigning are most welcome.


Please see more details here: gmb-equality-summits-2023 (gmb-southern.org.uk)


As a result of there being no limit to the number of attendees, it has been agreed that we will advertise the summits to all GMB Southern Region members. However, Branches like yours will be informed of who has applied to attend and asked to raise any concerns.


Please share this information with your members and ask them to apply for a place using the links below:

Disabled Workers Summit: Saturday 18 November


Young Workers Summit – Workers age 30 & under: Saturday 25 November

The deadline for applications to be received by the Region is Thursday 5th October at midday.
