Race Equality Hub
Tackling systemic injustice and inequality to drive forward positive change for our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees and residents.
The £2.3m Race Equality Hub, established by Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, will support career opportunities for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and the development of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic businesses across the Liverpool City Region (LCR). It is the largest investment in race equality in the history of the city region and builds upon the region’s values as a place of innovation and support for social justice.
The Liverpool City Region Race Equality Hub is an ambitious and innovative approach to tackle race inequality within the Liverpool City Region (LCR).
Building upon the city region’s reputation for social justice and equality, the Hub’s primary purpose is to tackle systemic injustice and inequality and drive forward positive change for our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees and residents.
We will work in partnership with public, private and 3rd sector employers, to encourage and support them to do the same, across all six boroughs of the city region in order to tackle the discriminatory barriers to recruitment and selection for these groups and develop positive action pathways into the workplace in order to address under-representation.
The Race Equality Hub is creating an Advisory Board made up of people from across the Liverpool City Region who can bring fresh ideas, perspectives and contributions, as well as a critical voice, that will enable the Hub to make a real and long-lasting difference to the economic advancement of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities across the Liverpool City Region.
