Becoming Anti Racist: from awareness to action
A session for all staff
We’re very excited to launch our new anti-racism training which we have developed with our associate Marilyn Bryan-Jones.
This course builds on the awareness raised throughout the Black Lives Matter movement, ties in with our Deeds Not Words pledge to action and supports organisations to achieve the Anti Racist Wales Action Plan (ARWAP) requirement for all staff to undertake anti-racism training by December 2023.
