Our vision for employability involves improving the recruitment process while protecting individuals dignity at work should they be subject to any form of discrimination or prejudice. We have identified a number of specific areas we’d like to focus on reforming or removing in the employability sector:
Providing non-generic diversity training in the workplace - identifying microaggressions and understanding black culture;
Helping those from the BAME community to build their own business and supporting their career goals to boost their chance of success;
Working with youth offenders in the community to give them a second chance and show them that they can succeed and;
Reforming recruitment processes - such as trailing blind CV’s.
The Street Food Project
The Street Food Project is an opportunity for someone from the BAME community in Nottingham to build their own food business locally. The individual will have recently left prison, and the focus is to give them the second chance that they deserve.
We recognise the lack of opportunities in the community, specifically for black men, and how they are deprived from basic opportunities which can lead them back down the path that they are trying to avoid.
We are focused on incentives that not only help these individuals right now, but build a better future for them and the next generation.
