125th Anniversary Lecture
Friday 30 October 2009
CHILDREN 1ST invites you to attend our 125th anniversary lecture titled "Killing with Kindness" delivered by Lesley Riddoch, journalist and broadcaster.
Lesley Riddoch is one of Scotland’s best known commentators and broadcasters. She has held many influential positions including assistant editor of The Scotsman and contributing editor of The Sunday Herald. She is perhaps best known for her broadcasting with programmes on Radio 4, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland, for which she has won two Sony speech broadcaster awards.
Lesley will draw on Scandinavian models and on her considerable research and experience. She will suggest that the absence of universal, affordable childcare from the age of one is helping to perpetuate class inequality and to create future generations of inarticulate children, destined for exclusion from employment and full participation in society.
The event will be held at 7pm in the D'Arcy Thomson Lecture Theatre, The Tower Building, Dundee University on Thursday 3 December 2009.
Join us for what promises to be a challenging and thought-provoking event.
Tickets are £10 and include canapés and refreshments.
