Being fair and

respectful to all

October marks Black History Month, which is an

opportunity to celebrate and recognise the inspiring

contributions that the black community have made

through the years and continue to make.

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) group met at

the start of the month. They discussed previous meetings

and a roundtable that focused on the recent Black Lives

Matter protests. Also, the group looked at the way forward

for Ongo in terms of opening up the conversation about

race, and they agreed an initial action plan that aims to

focus on race equality and education.

Darwin Bernardo also joined the meeting to lead a

discussion on the topic of Black History Month. He is the

co-founder of Nutmeg Community, a youth empowerment

charity that engages with young people who are at risk of

being involved in youth crime in London.

Maz Abd-Alhak, who was part of a recent meeting,

said: "The meetings and discussions have been really

enlightening to me."

If you would like to be a part of the conversation, email

I've felt able to be open and honest

in the welcoming and respectful

environment. It's nice to have the

chance to talk about challenging

things like this to further promote

fairness and equality.
