Developed in partnership with those with lived experience, the Trailblazers spotlight organisations that are implementing impactful solutions to drive race equality.
Trailblazer is more than an award and its purpose is to:
1. Identify what organisations are doing that is making a meaningful impact
2. Encourage organisations that are making an impact to keep the momentum going
3. Inspire other organisations to up their game
REM Trailblazer accreditation signals your organisation’s commitment to taking action on race inequality.
The decision is based upon key criteria which you submit to be adjudicated independently by a panel of experts/those with lived experience of race inequality in the workplace,
Trailblazers also enable us to identify what works, to help create future solutions plus share findings. We believe that peer competition, stimulated by this recognition of excellence, will make a significant impact to accelerate tackling race inequality in the workplace
