KIRKLEES race relations experts have taken part in a major conference in Denmark on racial harmony.
Kirklees Council deputy chief executive Rob Vincent and Stanley Inniss, chairman of the Kirklees Racial Equality Council, were invited to address the European Managing Diversity conference in Sonderborg.
The conference, organised by Diverse Reflections - a European funded partnership between Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom - examined key themes relating to the effective integration of minority communities and immigrants into the workforce.
Following its success, it is anticipated that the next conference will be held in Kirklees in September next year.
Representatives of a number of Kirklees organisations, and councillors Linda Wild and Mark Hemmingway, were able to attend the event in Denmark.
Mr Vincent and Mr Inniss shared their experiences of equality and diversity issues with over 200 European delegates.
Mr Vincent said: "It's always very flattering to be asked to address an international event and to be able to share with European colleagues the good work that goes on here in Kirklees.
"Having spoken to other delegates during the conference, it is apparent to me that there is a great deal to be learned from sharing experiences with other countries."
