In conversation with David Lammy... how to be an anti-racist organisation?

By Thames Menteth-Wheelwright, Marketing Lead - on 26/05/2021

On Tuesday 25 May 2021 we were joined by David Lammy MP for a webinar to discuss how to be an anti-racist organisation, and what that means for the housing sector.

 

This is the first in a series of events that the Racial Equality Group, set up by The Centre for Excellence in Community Investment, hope to run across the year, which will focus on steps we can all take to promote racial equality in our organisations and our communities.

About the Racial Equality Group

Alongside many across the UK, housing associations were spurred into action by the murder of George Floyd in 2020 and the resurgent Black Lives Matter movement. A group of committed housing associations have worked with the Centre for Excellence in Community Investment to form a Racial Equality Group.

Following a joint statement of intent from the group and engagement events with colleagues across the sector to develop plans, the Racial Equality Group are hosting this event to continue the conversation and keep pushing for action to move towards racial equality.
