Code: BH/20/1472 Anti racism and white privilege (elected members only)

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

As a predominantly white council we must recognise what we don’t know, what we don’t experience and see. We need to openly discuss the language we use and understand what different words mean to different people.

To support this, we want to educate staff on white privilege, language and structural racism, As a starting point, we are offering this training for staff.

This anti-racism session has been designed to:

  • 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
The course will be delivered by Lesley Aitcheson, from training company Ceruleanblu. For the last 19 years, Lesley has provided training to range of well-respected organisations.

Lesley is a qualified and experienced organisational and learning development specialist, working with particular focus on leadership, equality and inclusion, organisational development, management skills, and personal development.

Code: BH/20/1430 Fair and Inclusive Mandatory Virtual Staff Briefing (EVENT FULL)

The council is committed to being a fair and inclusive employer and service provider to the city. This means all staff must understand their role in understanding diversity within the workplace and community, and how they embed equality and inclusion in everything they do.

The council has been working to deliver and continually develop our Fair and Inclusive Action Plan as our response to inequality and in particular racial inequality and disability discrimination.


We had planned to deliver this session in venues earlier in the year but this has been delayed by Covid-19.

  • Our Fair & Inclusive Action Plan & its background & the four key workstreams
  • Our anti-racism pledge
