Social Enterprise UK and anti-racism
Social enterprises are businesses set up to challenge inequalities but we cannot escape from the fact that inequalities of access and opportunity persist in our sector, reflecting those found in wider society. This is particularly apparent when it comes to racial inequality, with too many barriers still faced by racialised groups within the social enterprise community.
