Dame Louise Casey DBE CB, a British Government official who raised serious issues of social integration in the UK last year, will speak at Leeds Trinity University on Wednesday 14 June.
She will discuss her role as Director General of the Casey Review Team; a group of advisors appointed by the Prime Minister David Cameron in 2015 to review opportunities for integration in some of our most isolated communities.
She will also talk about her impressive career in social care, including her work with homelessness, anti-social behaviour and troubled families, before she steps down from Government next month.
Dame Louise said: “It’s always a pleasure to come to Leeds. This event is a tremendous opportunity to reflect on nearly two decades of public service and the need, now more than ever, for bravery in leadership.”
Dame Louise is the final speaker in this year’s Trinity Talks; a prestigious series of high-profile lectures for Leeds Trinity’s 50th Anniversary.
Professor Margaret House, Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said:
“As a teacher training college since 1966 and our extensive knowledge and expertise in childhood and education, learning about social policy – particularly around children and young people – is of huge interest to many of our staff, students and alumni at Leeds Trinity. We are honoured to have Dame Louise speaking as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, and we look forward to welcoming her onto campus.”
An engaging and inspiring speaker, Dame Louise’s talk will be of interest to anyone involved with communities, social policy, children, young people and families, and government.
The event is free to attend and everyone is welcome. The talk begins at 7.00pm on Wednesday 14 June with refreshments and networking from 6.00pm.
