This is the second virtual Community Conversation, hosted by Business in the Community (BITC) and Midland Metro Alliance. These events explore how people from all sectors can support the recovery and rebuilding of the economy in Dudley in the West Midlands. BITC believes that resilient communities are made up of collaborative partnerships, which are willing to work together and build on local knowledge resulting in long-term change. 

About Community Conversations

This Community Conversation will focus on the benefits of improved connectivity within areas of opportunity and major employment sites. To complement this, we will explore wider social and environmental issues that all three sectors can address in a collaborative fashion. In this session, local community organisations have been invited to present a current challenge or idea.

A Community Conversation is a cross-sector virtual networking event exploring working collaboratively. It is a forum for community, business and the public sector to share opportunities, discuss priorities and highlight areas of need to help build a healthier sustainable community.

A key outcome from a Community Conversation is a commitment amongst participants to continue to work together and agree on collaborative actions that can make a real difference in a place. BITC will assess actions/pledges/offers after the event and make plans for further action.

During the virtual event there will be break-out sessions, which are designed to discuss challenges, ideas and solutions as a group. This will provide an opportunity for participants to work as part of a cross-sector team, sharing their knowledge to provide real support to local communities.


  • Welcome back and recap from previous session – Business in the Community

  • Question and answer session
