Becoming an anti-racist organisation
At PSS we’re against racism of all kinds. Not only will we never tolerate any kind of individual racism where we work, but we’re doing all we can to make a stand against systemic racism, too, starting with how we do things at PSS. We’re working hard to become an anti-racist organisation.
What does that mean?
It means that we’re doing everything we can to be as inclusive as we can. We’re serious about taking a long, hard look at PSS at every level, looking at how we recruit people, how we support people, how we educate our staff and how we can raise the voices of the people we support and our team members as they have important conversations about racism and celebrate diversity. We want help all of our staff understand what White privilege means and have the space and time to take a step back and think about how racism has affected all of our lives, no-matter what our ethnicity is.
Being anti-racist is a choice you can make in your life to help make the world a better, more inclusive place. It’s about doing things, however small or large, to actively speak out against racism in the world. When you apply for a role with us, we’ll be asking you to agree to join us in being anti-racist in every way we can – to listen and to understand as best you can. We’re going to help you recognise how racism impacts our lives, show you some of the ways you can be anti-racist in your life, and help you to see how you can play a part in changing things for the better. We’ve got lots of learning and development opportunities to help us be better – and we’re constantly updating and tweaking them to suit our changing world. After all, just being ‘not racist’ isn’t enough to make the world a better place – we need to rise against it together to make a change.
