DARE Steering Group

Our aim is to:

  • Encourage dialogue and create opportunities for authentic conversations about race and ethnicity;
  • To share knowledge and experience of breaking down barriers and changing the narrative around race and ethnicity;
  • Organise events to allow conversations to take place (e.g. conferences, cafe events, forum meetings, training events and face to face conversations).
  • Create the opportunity to shape future policies around race and ethnicity.
