Mary Fee MSP, convenor of the Scottish Parliament’s Equal Opportunities Committee, will address delegates on Saturday.
On Sunday there will be speeches by Drew Smith MSP, representing the Better Together campaign, and Toni Giugliano on behalf of Yes Scotland. Question-and-answer sessions will follow.
