Pupils take part in equality and inclusion event in Falmer

MORE than 100 school children attended an event on equality, diversity and inclusion at Amex Stadium.

The event, hosted by Albion In The Community (AITC) in partnership with American Express, marked a new program of workshops promoting kindness and positivity to be held in schools across Brighton and Hove.

Students made collages, wrote poetry, and took part in challenges that showcased their different passions and skills and how teamwork helped them succeed.

20 American Express employees also attended and shared their experiences with the children.

Charlotte Nellist, Vice President of American Express and a volunteer at the event, said, “It was exciting to be part of the launch of this new element in our community program.

“The young people who took part were all incredibly engaged and showed interest and understanding in conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion.

“Young people are our future and we hope through today’s event they will have an even better understanding of the positive impact they can make in their community by showing kindness, support and understanding.”

The workshops take place throughout the school year and run for Moulsecoomb Primary School, Bevendean Primary School and Brighton Aldridge Community Academy.

The event is part of American Express’ Learn, Live, Play volunteer program which combines the power of football and passion for Brighton and Hove Albion with the time, energy and expertise of American Express staff to help communities across Sussex to help.

Sarah McAdam, AITC’s Executive Education Manager, said, “The program is fundamentally about values, kindness and encouraging a positive attitude.

“We help young people recognize and celebrate differences, equip them with tools to empower themselves and others, and encourage them to be advocates and role models.

“We’re excited to see how the program is received and how it plays out over the next nine months.”
