1 Feb 2021

A UK-wide initiative, Race Equality Week was launched by community interest company Race Equality Matters to turn words into action; a movement spurred on by the events of 2020 which have heightened the country collective consciousness of the racism, inequality and injustice experienced by ethnic minority people.

It is time for a change. Now is the time to act! 

We are asking our customers and colleagues to join us and thousands of others by participating in Race Equality Week and taking meaningful action towards tackling the barriers to race equality.

There are a number of ways to get involved: 

  • Virtual Badge Campaign: devised by the co-creator of the Green Ribbon Mental Health Campaign; A visible movement of support for race equality.
  • The Big Promise: a commitment to action, not words. Individuals and / or organisations make a public commitment to create a positive change.
  • Safe Space: which guides conversation into action. This initiative helps organisations enable a meaningful and purposeful dialogue between board members and ethnic minority employees.
