Workshop content

You are invited to our half day workshop in which we will explore the topic of racism. This is an important global conversation happening right now. This workshop will allow participants to reflect and consider how racism applies to charity retail so that we can take steps to make positive change. We will cover:

  • What we mean by racism and how it shows up in organisations. This will include considering systemic racism as well as direct and indirect racial discrimination
  • Your legal and moral obligations in dismantling, tackling and preventing racist behaviour
  • Bias and how this can impact us (including personal bias, organisational bias and transgenerational bias)
  • How to move towards a consciously inclusive approach, including how to take appropriate action

We understand this can be a difficult topic but by joining the conversation you are taking the first step to addressing racism in our sector. This is a safe space in which to explore, learn and reflect.

Diversity and inclusion

We encourage attendance from members from ethnic minority communities as these groups are underrepresented in our sector and we are working to include their viewpoints in all our events.

We welcome all voices, whether spoken, issued prior to meetings, or during meetings electronically.
