Code: BH/21/0606 Anti racism and white privilege

Brighton & Hove City Council has made a commitment to becoming an anti-racist council.

  • support staff to strengthen their understanding of race equality and develop the knowledge and skills to identify and address racism in their workplace
  • Introduce participants to the main concepts of race equality, such as privilege and structural racism within a safe, open and reflective space
