What is REM Trailblazer?

The Trailblazer series spotlights forward-thinking organisations that are implementing impactful solutions to drive race equality.

It was developed in response to regular requests from people who wanted to know which organisations were successfully taking action and making an impact on race equality.

Organisations apply to be Trailblazers and their applications are assessed by an independent judging panel. If successful, they are awarded a Trailblazer medal.

Applications are now open.
