Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Mayday recognises that a key failing of current support systems, and of the charity sector, is their poor record on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Failing systems around those experiencing tough times are damaging to everyone, but that damage is not experienced equally. Whether it is due to race, gender, disability, sexuality or how individuals may identify, broken systems make life harder for anyone who doesn’t conform to what is seen as ‘standard’ and for people who are experiencing process-led systems which are designed to exclude rather than include.
We understand that to truly create a radical and impactful organisation, which in turn influences systems change, EDI needs to be at the heart of everything we do. We don’t claim to know the answers but we are committed to continually learning and evolving in order to be as accessible and inclusive as we can.
We are open to learning and development, so if you have suggestions for how we can continue to grow our commitment to EDI, please do get in touch.
