At Tearfund, we believe that broken relationships are the root cause of poverty and injustice. Alienating strangers, disregarding differences and marginalising minorities do not reflect the Kingdom of God or the welcome Christ offers to all.

Diversity is woven into the very essence of this world: this is clear from the variety of life we find in the creation story. Yet diversity has not remained the gift that God intended it to be. Instead, it has become a means for discrimination and prejudice, keeping relationships broken and leading to the creation of societal systems which perpetuate injustice and are a major cause of poverty.

The Global Forum on diversity and inclusion will create a unique space for practitioners, academics and theologians to reflect on both the theology and the practical application of inclusion. We are excited to be joined by speakers from around the world, including Jayakumar Christian, Dr Jill Harshaw, Dr Havilah Dharamraj, Esther Mombo and Nabil Habibi.

Over three days we will discuss the concept of inclusion, the theologies that shape our policies and practices today, and the behaviours and systems that - unless challenged - will continue to cause injustices in the future. Each day will focus on a key theme:

In particular we will explore inclusion as it relates to race, ethnicity, disability and gender.
