Equality and diversity

In 2020, in the light of the Black Lives Matter movement, NAWRA made a statement affirming our hatred of racism and our commitment to ensuring that NAWRA is a fully inclusive organisation –

‘As a membership-led body, we are strongly committed to ensuring we represent all of our members. We strongly value the diversity of our membership and we make a commitment not to tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination.

However, we recognise that we cannot be complacent about racism within our own organisation and the wider inequalities within society. The NAWRA committee is looking at ways that we can improve. We are committed to ensuring that NAWRA is an inclusive organisation where members are free from discrimination, but we know we can do more.

We know that learning more about the inequalities faced by the Black community and reflecting on them, is crucial. We welcome all our members’ thoughts and ideas for where we can take positive action that helps us make a stand against racism more broadly and to challenge structural and institutional racism that perpetuates these injustices.’

NAWRA is committed to improving diversity in the advice sector and, to that end, we have established our equality and diversity working group to proactively look at ways that we can take this forward.


Our equality and diversity working group meet regularly.

Our next meeting will take place on Zoom at 2-3pm on Thurs 12 May 2022. Read the agenda.
