Is Scotland fairer?

We welcome Professor Lesley Sawers to deliver the opening lecture of 2017 – 2018 series of Crichton Conversations and are delighted that the evening is part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Business Week programme.

Lesley was appointed Equality and Human Rights Commissioner for Scotland in 2016. She asks the question Is Scotland fairer? and will focus on equality, diversity and inclusion issues . We hope that the theme will be of interest particularly relating to the specific issues facing many rural communities.

From a distinguished academic background she graduated in Political Economics at Glasgow University with a PhD from the University of Stirling. She has worked in a range of businesses and was Chief Executive of Scotland’s leading think tank the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) before joining the staff at Glasgow Caledonian University becoming Vice Principal and Pro Vice Chancellor. Now an Honorary Professor she continues as Deputy Chair of Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and is Executive Chair of Genanalytics Ltd.

Doors will open at 5:30pm and a buffet supper will be served at 6pm for those who have pre-booked. The lecture will start at 7:30pm prompt.
