The Collaboratory, Green Park & Black History Month Magazine launch Race Equality Week
The Collaboratory has partnered with Black History Month Magazine and Green Park, a diversity and recruitment consultancy to found a not for profit community enterprise which aims to eliminate racial inequality in the workplace through a number of initiatives, including, launching a UK-wide Race Equality Week set to take place in February.
Fuelled by the rage of the Black Lives Matter Movement, this concept was developed to turn declarations of support into meaningful change by creating a collaboration of organisations, race networks, D&I experts, individuals and allies.
One of the many initiatives in the pipeline is the already established Race Equality Network which has a growing number of members, including members from the NHS, Westminster, The Bank of England & Barclays amongst others.
The next step is the BRAND NEW Race Equality Week 1st February 2021, providing organisations UK-wide with activities addressing the racial inequalities faced by ethnic minorities within their organisations and industries. During this week, organisations will be given access to resources and support to facilitate the implementation of the Race Equality Week pin-badge campaign, to ignite conversations and encourage a real commitment to creating meaningful change.
Dame Fiona Woolf DBE, DL, former Lord Mayor of London (2013/14) quotes: “As Lord Mayor of the City of London, diversity and inclusion was at the heart of my role. I am glad to say that we have seen some progress, particularly on gender and LGBTQ+ but we know there is much more to do, especially on race. Race Equality Week, such a simple but brilliant concept, provides everyone with the perfect opportunity to keep momentum for change going and even accelerating.”
