The Olympic athlete was booked through MN2S to give a talk on issues surrounding racial identity.
Babcock are a “leading provider of critical, complex engineering services which support national defence, save lives and protect communities.” As part of their Dialogue Month, a month aimed at ensuring that the organisation are contributing to a culture of respect and inclusivity, they invited Dame Kelly Holmes to give a 60-minute talk on those issues, speaking about her own experiences surrounding race and how they relate to the issue in contemporary society.
A well-known athlete, media personality, and philanthropist, Holmes has found considerable success and acclaim following her sporting career. The Olympic star has brought home two gold medals, while earning medals at World Championship, Commonwealth and European levels. Her unflagging dedication, devotion and determination has made her a revered figure not only within the sporting world but in popular culture as a whole. A truly inspiring figure, she can speak on a range of issues including race, mental health, motivation and athleticism.
