Explore what it takes to be a truly anti-racist brand, no matter what size of organisation or your role within it. Join Collette Philip, managing director and founder of the award-winning brand and strategy consultancy Brand by Me, in this hot topic mini-workshop.

“Structural racism is encrypted in the very fabric of our society, our history, our institutions and our policies.” – Runnymede Trust, 2019 (via

#CharitySoWhite.  #BlackLivesMatter.  The existence of racism in our sector is not new news.  Many organisations have issued statements, posted black squares and are maybe looking at “unconscious bias” training.  But is that enough?   At CharityComms and Brand by Me, we think that brands can play a fundamental role in tackling structural and systemic racism – not just in organisations but within wider society too.  After all, the opposite of racist is not “not racist”.  It’s anti-racist.  So, in this mini-workshop, we’ll explore what it takes to be a truly anti-racist brand.  Whether you are a large or small charity.  At an organisational AND individual level.  No matter what your role is in the organisation. And we’ll leave you with practical next steps and a clear call to action to put anti-racism at the heart of YOUR brand.
