Race Equality Week 2024

What is the significance of Race Equality Week? 

Race Equality Week was established in 2020 by Race Equality Matters in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and subsequent activities that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This annual event serves as a dedicated period to confront and dismantle the barriers hindering race equality within the workplace.

Race Equality Week has become a pivotal platform for organisations to reassess, redefine, and reinforce their commitment to fostering an inclusive work environment.

What is the theme for Race Equality Week 2024? 

The theme for this year’s Race Equality Week is #ListenActChange aligning with ongoing research and feedback. It serves as a call to action, inspiring collective efforts to turn awareness into tangible, transformative change.

Getting everyone involved 

Consulting with staff or network groups on what your organisation does around Race Equality Week (and other key diversity and inclusion events throughout the year) is key.
A diverse group of people will generate more creative solutions; therefore, senior leadership should aim to consult with all staff members and communicate authentically in a way that inspires trust, loyalty, and wellbeing.
