Event details

In one of our key events to commemorate Stephen Lawrence Day, this panel discussion will focus on the support of anti-racism, race, faith and hate crime.

This event is open to both NTU staff and students, with the panel consisting of members from across the University.


We’re pleased to share the conversation will be chaired by NTU’s EDI Executive Dean and multi-faith manager, Clive Foster and will welcome the following NTU colleagues as panel members:

  • Darion Smalls, Co-chair of REACH network:
  • Irene Zempi, Associate professor in Criminology
  • Professor Dr Loretta Trickett, Professor in Nottingham Law School
  • Sajid Mohammed, Himmah organisation

This important panel conversation will give an opportunity for our NTU community to reflect on Stephen’s life and death, explore the role and impact of different institutional bodies in Stephen’s murder case, and raise awareness of hate crime in the present day.

There will be an opportunity for audience members to also engage in a Q&A with the panel members following the main discussion.

We hope you will join us to remember Stephen through this panel conversation, and explore what we can all do as individuals to ensure positive change over the next 30 years.
