Ideas and Resources


Here are TEN ways that you and your organisation can take part:

1. Sign up to Race Equality Matters

If you haven’t done this already, sign up to access resources and hear about the latest news and events HERE.

2. Hear what your colleagues really think and feel

Hold organisation-wide themed discussions to enable courageous conversations. Hear the honest voices and feelings of your colleagues. The Tea Break, co-created with Network Rail’s Cultural Fusion Network, provides a framework for employees across your organisation to hear the honest voice and feelings of colleagues. Download the Tea Break ‘How to do it Right Guide’ HERE.

3. Enable brave conversations so your leaders can drive change

Bring those with lived experience together with senior leaders and drive meaningful change. Safe Space is a 2-hour facilitated dialogue between 3-5 exco members and up to 10 ethnic minority colleagues which results in action being taken. Download the Safe Space ‘How to do it Right Guide’ HERE.

4. Get your colleagues to make a public commitment to Race Equality

Create positive change by encouraging individuals to make a promise which is measurable and to which they will be held accountable to. Participants choose from seven meaningful actions devised by our ethnic minority community. Download the Big Promise ‘How to do it Right Guide’ HERE.

5. Ensure everyone feels valued and included

When you say people’s names right you make them feel accepted, included and that they belong.

#MyNameIs is a simple solution that helps everyone to feel included by normalising phonetic spelling.
