Anti-Racism Action Plan

A note from our Chairman, Shaun Woodward:

"As part of our ongoing commitment by the LAMDA Board to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, we have worked extensively and collaboratively to develop this refreshed Anti-Racism Action Plan. The Board remains totally committed to continuing to advance the work on anti-racism and to ensuring LAMDA will continue to be an inclusive and welcoming institution to all.

This action plan builds on the significant earlier work undertaken by the whole LAMDA community – many strands of which, have been advanced in the assigning of roles to key staff, and which therefore are already well underway.

The Board anticipates creating a new Senior Management role of Director of Equalities, Access and Participation towards the end of the year, which will lead the organisation by strategically ensuring LAMDA will drive forward this important initiative in the context of our commitment to advancing EDI broadly.

By addressing these vital issues, we are focused on uniting everyone within LAMDA and the wider industry, by providing clear benchmarks and high-level goals, which represent those major areas in which LAMDA can continue to progress effectively the ongoing strategy to generate a sector-leading culture of anti-racism."
