Economic inequality is one of the great problems of our time. As the media berates us with statistics emphasising the magnitude of the gap between the richest and the poorest sections of society is easy to feel powerless to make a change. We are therefore pleased to present two speakers who believe that not only is it necessary to create a more equal society, but also that it is possible.

Join us for a discussion on what we can do to combat inequality; featuring Sir Anthony Atkinson (Senior Research Fellow at The Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School and author of Inequality: What can be done?) and Nick Bryer (Head of Oxfam GB's 'even it out' campaign against inequality).
