What you can do to ensure a more equitable work environment for all employees
by Fingerprint for Success
• Reflect demographics of Croydon in team, trustees and commissions.
• Open up anon feedback more – reminders on site and socials and put in signatures. Change how we manage & process feedback – read over feedback together and make actions.
• Do the same with assessing how we’re doing reaching audiences who reflect the demographics of Croydon & make actions.
• Use opportunities in programme to make space for conversations about race & inequality, respond more openly to local social context & social injustice in Croydon.
• As above make funding available to invite external criticism / writing / questioning – questions in the context of Croydon & art – make our internal conversations more public.
• Fundraising via a new edition channelled towards an organisation (or selection of orgs) who specifically support black communities and seek to address race inequality. (You can buy this edition now here!)
• Improve our library with more black authors and important reading & resources, available for anyone to use for free
