City Makers’ Forum: The reality of levelling up


Following the launch of the Levelling Up White Paper in February and the launch of round 2 of the Levelling Up Fund in March, we'll be discussing what this means for London's City Makers.

This in-person forum will unpack the opportunities and challenges to Levelling Up within the capital, and how we can work with partners across the country to address urban inequalities.

Join us for insight on how to apply the principles of Levelling Up to your work in London, to hear perspectives from beyond the capital, and for networking with our cross-sector audience.

When: Tuesday 28 June 3pm to 5pm
Where: Central London

Confirmed speakers

  • Jennifer Daothong, Executive Director Housing, LB Lewisham
  • Abi Gbago, Strategic Director Inclusive Growth, LB Barking & Dagenham
  • John Wrathmell, Director Strategy, Research & Economy, Greater Manchester Combined Authority
