Diversity and Inclusion – Social Enterprises and Anti-racism

Social enterprises are businesses set up to challenge inequalities but we cannot escape from the fact that they still persist in our sector reflecting wider inequalities of access and opportunity throughout society. This is particularly apparent when it comes to racial inequality, with too many barriers still faced by racialised groups within the social enterprise community.

This page will be a space to share learning and best practice as well as explore how social enterprises can play a part in dismantling systemic injustices as we strive to build a more equal and sustainable economy.

It will show what we’re doing at SEUK to ensure that we work as an anti-racist organisation, setting out our strategy on how we embed principles of equality, diversity and inclusion across our internal processes and wider work as the voice of the sector. Our initial focus will be on tackling racism but we have seen that changes we make to improve inclusion and diversity in this space are broadly similar to practices required to ensure all we do reaches people from other under-represented, marginalised and disadvantaged groups

This area will grow and develop as we work with our members and partners to collect up to date information and share resources to support our sector take on these issues.
