An early step for white people becoming anti-racist is recognising their own racial and cultural identity. There is no ‘normal’, ‘default’, or ‘standard’ racial identity. It’s also important to recognise that due to systemic inequity, white people hold more power and privilege than people of colour.

How do I do it?

There is an abundance of resources available to improve your knowledge of racial equity. It’s important to take up the responsibility of educating yourself, rather than expecting people of colour to educate you.

Your workplace should prioritise regular training and professional development programs focused on anti-racism and cultural safety.
