Is facial prejudice the last taboo?

We are all exposed to a visual diet that tells us that our happiness and success depend on our facial looks. James Partridge, founder of the charity Changing Faces, was severely injured in a car fire at the age of 18. He has since worked tirelessly to support people with unusual-looking faces and to raise awareness of our unconscious prejudice against facial disfigurement. He will share his inspiring story of challenging society to stop taking people at ‘face value’.
