RACE EQUALITY WEEK 2023
Across the week we will hold a number of virtual events as we looked to create an open discussion with industry leaders from various sectors. Now there is a need to galvanise and maximise impact through a nationwide collaboration for real change.
Race Equality Week is an annual UK-wide movement uniting thousands of organisations and individuals to address the barriers to race equality in the workplace. And Race Equality Week 2023 is just around the corner!
The theme for 2023 is #ItsEveryonesBusiness because tackling race inequality is everyone’s business.
“Commitment is not measured by words, it is measured by outcomes and actions”
THE 5-DAY CHALLENGE
Built by the Race Equality Matters Community.
There are DIFFERENT activities for all your colleagues to engage with each day of Race Equality Week – they include videos, articles, and activities to help your employees reflect and more importantly take action to drive Race Equality.
Each activity is 5-minutes.
There are downloadable PDFS for each day that can be distributed to employees or access via your organisation’s employee portal.
THE BIG PROMISE
The Big Promise is a commitment to action not just words.
Individuals make a public commitment, which is measurable and to which they will be held accountable, to create a positive change. Choose from seven meaningful actions devised by our ethnically diverse community; forming a bridge between lived experience, investment and decision making.
Join the hundreds who have made their Big Promise and impact change!
A CATALYST FOR ONGOING CHANGE
Be part of the solution that creates the change we all want to see.
More than 2,000 organisations took part in the first Race Equality Week in February 2021. In 2022 we engaged 3,500 organisations. 2023 will be the biggest Race Equality Week yet. Join the movement through building on your own race activity and/or accessing and implementing the solutions, tools and resources we have co-created with those with lived experience.
“Race Equality Week has the potential to be game-changing. In the way, it combines conscious allyship with a strong peer network.”
