How to be Anti-racist and Promote Race Equality

How to be Anti-racist and Promote Race Equality

Definitions of anti-racism and race equality

We hosted a workshop on anti-racism from CEMVO Scotland, you can find the slides under EDI Fortnight 2024 materials. It explains definitions such as anti-racism; racial hierarchy; white privilege; microaggressions; and the best terminology to use. It also provides guidance on how to address implicit bias; how to challenge microaggressions and racism; how to be an anti-racist organisation; and ethnic minority community engagement.

A glossary by the Anti-racist Educator may also be useful for anything that the above materials may not cover.

Template diversity and anti-racism statement

Our sister organisation, Wildlife and Countryside LINK have produced an excellent diversity and anti-racism statement that you can read and adapt to either place on your website or as part of your Equality Policy  or Diversity Action Plan.

Ethnic diversity route map

In signing up to the Route map towards greater ethnic diversity in the environment sector, Scottish Environment LINK is making the following commitment:

“Our organisation is committed to achieving the outcomes of this route map to create a more ethnically diverse and inclusive environment movement. Organisations across the sector may take different paths to achieve these changes, but we are united in our conviction that change is necessary. We intend to create a more inclusive culture and more inclusive ways of working, to address racism and barriers to progress for people of colour, and to increase our ethnic diversity. We are determined to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be part of our vital environmental mission.”

Other organisations can join the route map in enhancing ethnic diversity in the environment sector.
