Coin Street is proud to be participating in Race Equality Week, from 5-11 February 2024. Race Equality Week will unite thousands of organisations in action to seriously address race inequality in the workplace.
A UK-wide initiative, Race Equality Week was launched by community interest company Race Equality Matters to turn words into meaningful action; a movement spurred on by the events of 2020, which have heightened the country’s collective consciousness of the racism, inequality, and injustice experienced by ethnically diverse communities.
We need to keep the momentum going when it comes to tackling race inequality. Race Equality Week was created to enable this hence it is positioned a few months after Black History Month.
With over 4,500 organisations engaged in 2023, Race Equality Week 2024 is set to engage even more.
Race Equality Week is a positive force for action.
Building on the REW 2023 theme, which sent a clear message that race equality is everyone’s business (#ItsEveryonesBusiness), the 2024 theme of #ListenActChange will bring everyone together to focus on taking action to drive change.
The theme was selected by the Race Equality Matters community and it reflects ongoing findings and feedback:
Everyone has a role to play in the fight for racial equality in the workplace, from the top of each organisation to the bottom. The sooner we act, the sooner change can become our reality!
Here are four ways your organisation can get involved:
If we all commit to #ListenActChange, then real change can take place.
