Oral update - the Director of Innovation & Engagement to be heard.


The Board received an oral update from the Director of Innovation and Engagement providing an update on the equality and inclusion work underway at the Centre.



Members were informed that the Barbican Anti-Racism Reflect and Initiate Group was live and meeting weekly. This Group was engaging across Centre, looking externally for example of good practice in the Sector and beyond and collaborating with the Barbican’s strategic groups on its workstreams and Business Plan.


Training has progressed regarding inclusive leadership and the Group is working with HR and the Equality Group to roll out a full training programme for the Management Team and staff.


The Group is also aligning with the City Corporation’s Tacking Racism Taskforce and the work coming out from its recommendations that recently went to Policy & Resources Committee. The Town Clerk agreed to share this report.
