Hate crime is not a new phenomenon, however, there has been a sharp increase since the Brexit vote and recently the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC)have predicted a further surge this year.
A hate crime is defined as a criminal offence against a person or a property motivated in whole or part by a bias against:
- Transgender identity
- Sexual orientation
This seminar will discuss the current UK status on hate crimes, society’s reaction, the government response and how to manage the impact on organisations on their people.
