6-12 February is Race Equality Week, an annual UK-wide movement to address the many barriers to race equality in the workplace, including a lack of understanding of what it feels like to be in others’ shoes.

This week, REACH will be supporting the Five Day Challenge for Race Equality, and ask you to join us in taking five minutes each day to self-reflect and think about the small changes you could make. 

We’ll be updating this story with a new five minute challenge every day – so keep a look out here on The Insider to take part.
