Marsha de Cordova – 2020 Comments on Scrapping Unconscious Bias Training

The comments made by Marsha de Cordova, the Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, on 15 December 2020.

It is deeply worrying that the Government can decide to end a programme seeking to address racism and discrimination in its own workplaces without saying what it’s going to do to combat it instead.

The Government should have a plan to tackle these inequalities which lead to poor pay, poor career progression, and a lack of diversity at senior levels. Inaction shouldn’t be an option.
