Breaking the Cycle
Many are concerned that the perceived advances since the ’80s have been eroded over the last 10 years. We seek to create sustainable change.
We go beyond the surface and promote conversations that dig deeper into the role of race in corporate, professional and civic spaces.
The Black Policy Institute works with leaders and professionals under the guiding principle that the political is personal and the personal is political.
Race and Systemic Practice
Systemic thinking helps us look at the deep underlying structure of racism and inequality. It also helps us appreciate the power dynamics found in language and identity labels. For example, where an individual may be oppressed in one instance and part of an oppressive group or norm in another instance.
Leadership guidance and support
Leadership engagement is a fundamental feature of change. We have developed a race equality leadership framework that considers the underlying structures that maintain racial inequity and explains how to achieve change within organisations.
Support for equalities leaders
Support is needed for those who have a formal equality and diversity leadership role, leaders of staff networks, and those who are asked to lead race discussions and task forces.
These professionals will require structured mentorship, training, good practice examples, and support to optimise their role in creating change.
