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. NAWRA is taking practical steps to improve equality and diversity associated with all protected characteristics within our organisation and the wider advice sector.
