Many people from racialised communities 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.
