Free guide urges all aid charity staff to tackle racism

Bond has published a free online framework on anti-racism and decolonising at international development charities, which says responsibility must be shared across all staff members. The framework maps out how systemic racism manifests across all areas of the international development sector and aims to support organisations to make steps to decolonise the sector.   It is designed to be used by individuals and teams across all functions of an organisation, with starter questions for chief executives to support addressing power imbalances. Questions include: ‘How diverse is your senior management team?’ ‘Do you feel comfortable talking about race and racism?’ And ‘Is anti-racism embedded in your strategic objectives and do you monitor progress?’
