Tackling race inequality

Tackling race inequality image

A city’s greatest asset is its people and one of Bristol's greatest strengths is our diversity. The melting pot of language, culture, skills and experiences makes us a centre for creative thought and action.

While that diversity is celebrated we are acutely aware of the significant inequalities that ethnic minority communities continue to face - inequalities that restrict their education and employment opportunities.

Since coming into office in 2016 we have sought to work with our city partners to tackle race inequality and are making great strides towards improving opportunities for BAME communities. We have engaged with the government’s Race Disparity Unit to develop the tools required to understand the diversity in Bristol’s public sector. Using the national Race Disparity Audit framework we have been able to map diversity across partners in the police, health, universities and local authority.
