5 Challenges – 5 Minutes – 5-Days

Built by the Race Equality Matters Community.

Overall, since the flurry of pledges many organisations were making back in 2020 to become more inclusive, which for many included black squares, signing charters and race action plans, progress in addressing racial inequality is proving to be a challenge.

Race Equality Matters’ survey highlighted that the majority of respondents felt very little had changed in the last 12 months.

If we can involve the majority, if not everyone, we believe we will see a much-needed shift in beliefs, cultures, behaviours, and outcomes for race equality. That is why the 2023 Race Equality Week theme is #ItsEveryonesBusiness.

The 5-Day Challenge will help

There are DIFFERENT activities for your colleagues to engage with each day of Race Equality Week – they include videos, articles, and activities to help you reflect and, more importantly, take action to drive Race Equality.

Each daily activity is 5 minutes, and there are ready-to-go downloadable PDFS for each day.
