2020 has marked a resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, prompted by a series of racist incidents in the US and UK. Most notable amongst these being the shooting of George.
People across the world have engaged with the social justice movement – marching in protests, joining together in vigils to honour those killed and spreading awareness through social media campaigns calling for the end of police brutality.
For many, the past few months have been a time to examine and dismantle internalised racism. However, the onus of being actively anti-racist is not on the individual alone. These are issues with systemic causes.
There has been a call for organisations to follow suit and reflect on whether they’re doing enough to counter systemic racism. This push for change has extended into the charity sector.
Last year, the #CharitySoWhite hashtag gained traction on Twitter, with hundreds of BAME professionals speaking to their experiences with racism within the charity sector. The hashtag campaign bought to light the fact that many BAME workers are still experiencing discrimination, wage disparity and oppression within the third sector.
Now more than ever, it is imperative that Charities examine how they can improve inclusion and diversity within their organisations. The first step in inciting change is understanding the facts of where we are with inclusion in the workforce today.
