Anti-Racism in the Workplace

Overview

Unfortunately, racism still undermines the rights of employees in many workplaces. Sometimes, it’s easy to spot and challenge. But sometimes, it’s subtle and embedded in policies, processes, or unconscious attitudes. Racism is never acceptable. To work towards a workplace that’s fair for everyone, you need to commit to actively challenging and overcoming it.

It’s time for you to take action. Because you have an important role to play in making sure racism isn’t present in your workplace. Recognising different forms of racism and how anti-racism strategies can overcome them in your workplace will help you to do so, as will understanding how to have respectful, productive conversations about race with your colleagues.
