PR gesturing will make no difference. Meaningful Action will.
With all the issues and news relating to the tragic events, including the George Floyd killing, the impact of COVID and inequalities to the BAME community, there is a real opportunity right now to create meaningful change in racial equality both in the workforce & in society.

felt recent BLM social posts by organisations were meaningless
of leaders felt current events have provided an opportunity to talk about Race
Driven by passion and anger, there is an appetite for action, yet there are a lot of individuals and organisations that could be accused of simply jumping on the bandwagon, or saying what they think they should be saying or making hollow gestures.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
We are creating a movement, a collaboration of companies, organsitions, BAME networks, experts in the field, allies, and employees.
Founded by Green Park & The Collaboratory, Race Equality Matters is a collaboration of individuals and organsitions uniting and collaborating to address the challenge of Race in the Workplace.
Following a series of 70+ in depth 1-2-1 interviews, we have gained some fascinating and inspiring insights from amazing senior business leaders, BAME network leads and BAME/D&I experts (thank you to them). We intend to create solutions and will work with collaborating organisations to implement the change.
A part of these solutions will be the Race Equality Network – a UK wide network of Race/BAME networks.
Will you be part of the movement?
The members of the Race Equality Network will be:
