For her inaugural lecture as an Honorary Professor at the University of Nottingham, Baroness Lola Young will discuss why she chose Modern Slavery as the focus of her parliamentary work, how to campaign effectively as a crossbencher in the House of Lords and the role and responsibilities of business in society.
Baroness Lola Young of Hornsey founded and Co-Chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group on Ethics and Sustainability in Fashion, and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Sport, Modern Slavery and Human Rights. In addition to this, she has previously served on several Select Committees, most recently on Sexual Violence in Conflict. Her professional biography before her appointment as an independent Crossbench member of the House of Lords entails an extensive acting career, a professorship of Cultural Studies and the Head of Culture at the Greater London Authority.
This event will take place on Monday 12 November, 14.30-15.30 in the Djanogly Theatre, Nottingham Lakeside Arts at the University of Nottingham. For more information, and to book your place, please visit the event website.
Lola has chosen an interactive and open format and we therefore want to encourage you to ask questions and engage in debate during the event. If you would like to send your question in advance to be read out rather than asking directly, please send this by email to email@example.com.
