Here is the latest update from Cardiff Council, covering: the Race Equality Taskforce is seeking applications for membership and views on what its priorities should be; there's still time to have a say on the Tudor Street improvement plans; and you can get in touch with our C2C contact centre team until 8pm via live web chat.
Racial inequality continues to exist in Cardiff, Wales and the UK. In autumn 2020, we will convene a Race Equality Taskforce to address racial discrimination and promote race equality in the city.
The Taskforce will drive coordinated and strategic action to address inequality in Cardiff, in collaboration with our public sector partners and major employers in the city. It will be responsible for advancing a programme of change and transformation to create a fairer city for our residents from ethnic minority backgrounds.
Over the summer of 2020, we will deliver a public consultation on the priority work streams of the Race Equality Taskforce to understand what our residents think are the biggest issues, and the greatest opportunities, for Cardiffians from ethnic minority backgrounds, so we can focus our thinking and resources into finding the solutions that will have the greatest impact.
We are seeking applications for Taskforce Membership from individuals with insight and interest in race, ethnicity and human rights, who have the ability, experience, opportunity and influence to make changes in their sector, industry and institutions or organisations.
Race Equality Taskforce Members will support the Taskforce Chair, Cllr Saeed Ebrahim, to deliver a programme of work which delivers the following objectives:
