Many People of Colour and Black people say they have to hide parts of their identity at work. The My Whole Self campaign is calling on employers to become actively anti-racist.
Anti-racist workplaces will build cultures where people feel valued and safe. They will enable people to focus on the job in hand and boost productivity through innovation. Workplaces play a key role in creating a society where everyone’s mental health matters.
MHFA England has launched guidance, with Chartered Management Institute and Business in the Community, to support the mental health and wellbeing of People of Colour and Black people in the workplace:
