‘Race discrimination, illegal in the UK since 1976, arises when someone is unfairly disadvantaged for reasons related to their race which, for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010, includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins. Caste may also be specifically included in future. To change attitudes, organisations should promote an open culture of respect and dignity for all employees, and value difference.’ (CIPD, 2020)

Being an Upstander not a Bystander: Tackling Prejudice and Hate Crime in Society and Discriminatory Bullying in School

The internet has allowed the publication of a diverse range of voices but also made it harder to choose quality sources based on fact. At the same time populist politicians have played on people's fears for their own gain. Divisive events such as Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have had a direct correlation with an increase in hate crime occurrences. Ten years of austerity and an ever increasing rise in inequality between rich and poor has exacerbated tensions and led to the scapegoating of minorities.

This workshop will explore issues covered in the film, Hate crime and prejudice ...
