Black Inclusion Week 2021

The first ever Black Inclusion Week takes place between 10 and 16 May 2021. The aim is to tackle inequalities and celebrate Black Inclusion.

The murder of George Floyd which was caught on video in the US not only motivated protests all over the UK, but it also ignited a national debate over Britain’s history. In response to these often untold horrific historical events, Black Leaders launched a national movement to help drive Black inclusion and challenge inequalities within our communities and working environment.

The hope is that Black Inclusion Week will create tangible change and set a course for a better, more inclusive future during a time when our society has never been more divisive.

The theme for Black Inclusion Week 2021 is #BeTheChange. Change starts within each and every one of us.  The idea is that organisations can be the change and choose to:

Challenge
Collaborate
Communicate
