Race Equality Hub- 

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority are currently developing a Liverpool City Region Race Equality Hub.  The Hub, one of the first of its kind in the country, will focus on training, employment support and business assistance for people from Black, Asian, and Minority ethnicities, and also offer advice and training for non-minority led businesses looking to better recruit, retain, support and promote Black, Asian, and Minority ethnic staff.

To help design the hub, the CA are hosting a number of online workshops with different groups to explore and co-design the hub. They are looking to engage with:

– Entrepreneurs of minority ethnicities
– Business or organisation owners of minority ethnicities
– Minority ethnic employees
– Non-minority ethnic led business or organisations
– Individuals who are new/recent arrivals to the UK from minority ethnic backgrounds
– 16 to 25-year-old individuals of minority ethnicities
