Our commitment to anti-racist practice on our continuous journey

‘We all have a role to play in facing up to discrimination and prejudice…’

Together we want to celebrate the diversity of young people’s experiences and challenge those systems which unfairly impact their lives. As the statement of intent shows, we all have a role to play in facing up to discrimination and prejudice and becoming truly anti-racist in our approach. To do this well, we recognise that the learning journey needs to start with self-reflection and appreciating what we each individually bring to our work that sits behind our organisational culture.

Intentions

The commitment of the youth impact domain to progress and champion anti-racist practice in all that we do is set out in the statement of intent.

Committed to conversations

This month we launched our new Committed to Conversations sessions. The intention with these sessions is to create dedicated time for colleagues to put their pens down, join a virtual conversation and feel confident to listen, and contribute to different themes that are emerging from our work with young people.
