Becoming anti-racist champions and allies
The following is a blog post I created as part of a daily challenge run by the People Profession 2030 Hackathon - Day 1 challenge: read Peter’s blog - what does the future look like to you? https://cipd.crowdicity.com/category/213600

Having read lots of very interesting discussions here today, I think that it's really important that we explicitly state and reinforce our shared commitment to anti-racism. I am personally and professionally committed to anti-racism and I want to play my part in ensuring that we move from non racism to anti-racism in this new world of work.
Tell us about your current practice. What are some of the key challenges that you navigate in your current role, and how do think these will change in the next 3-5 years?
I co-delivered a webinar recently on '#BlackLivesMatter - the role of HR'. Based on the questions/feedback from this event and other learning events, and from other work that I'm doing I think that many organisations want to move from being non racist to being anti racist but they don't know where to start, what to do or how to do it.
The CIPD have produced very good resources to help HR professionals in developing strategies, and based on their recent guide I used the slide above in a recent learning event. We have a huge role to play in managing this challenge and leading and influencing change.
