3 months ago, our CEO & Co-Founder Angus Thirlwell promised to update on our progress in being a force for good against inequality of opportunity in all its forms and, specifically, building an anti-racist culture. Here it is. A voluntary group from our UK, US, Saint Lucia and Japan teams have met fortnightly and frankly and openly shared experiences, ideas and agreed on these actions: To commit to long term learning about racism, its history, causes and manifestations To share our commitment to change To use our power and platform to take action We recognise the group alone cannot drive change without wider support and so we've signed the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter as well as partnered with an expert provider to provide Diversity and Inclusion training to everyone at Hotel Chocolat over the coming months. We’re pleased we have taken our important first steps and that we now have a passionate group to focus our long term commitment. #raceatworkcharter #diversityandinclusion #antiracism
