Equality and Diversity

Coronavirus has exposed inequalities in our society, most starkly with higher death rates among Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people. But Covid-19 shone a light on other fault lines too: Poorer families found it harder to support their children’s learning at home; many LGBTQ+ people were separated from those they rely upon for support; and while we were in lockdown, George Floyd’s killing in the United States illustrated once again the violent racism and prejudice experienced by black people in the US. It sparked a wave of anger and protest that swept the world, demanding fresh action to tackle racism and address white privilege.
