Race Equality will only be achieved when we all play a part #RaceEqualityWeek 7th – 13th February 2022 #actionnotjustwords


More than 2000 organisations including the National IRO Managers Partnership took part in the first Race Equality Week in February 2021, building on their own race activity and/or accessing and implementing the solutions, tools and resources have co-created with those with lived experience.

Our emphasis is to drive meaningful action that makes an impact. Race Equality will only be achieved when we all play a part.

Join the movement. Unite in action this Race Equality Week to challenge race inequality across the UK.

“Race Equality Week provides a real opportunity for us to be a force for good.”

Millie Kerr has been helping social workers understand how their biases can affect their peers and the families they support in her role at Brighton & Hove Council. In this post for Community Care, she said:

It is uncomfortable to have uncomfortable conversations about race, but we need to sit with this discomfort if we are to effect change. That means challenging our own fears, beliefs and biases to enhance our social work practice, when working with communities, cultures, customs and religions different from our own.
