While it’s great to hear from individuals, we’d love you to take part in a ‘Wee Circle’ and get together with family, friends, volunteers, co-workers or people within your organisation and community to discuss the questions below:
- Q1. In Scotland, there are no female MSPs or Scottish MPs of visible minority ethnicities. How should we address the issues which sustains systems which exclude Minority Ethnic people and their experiences from the mainstream?
- Q2. In Scotland, we know that for women there was a Minority Ethnic employment gap of 26.8 percentage points in 2018. Yet there has been 30 years of Race Equality in legislation. What could we do differently to address and change the systems which cause/result in these issues and in this discrimination?
- Q3. What actions should the NACWG recommend to improve gender equality for Minority Ethnic women and girls?
Your group can be any shape or size and take any form. This can be as formal or as informal as your situation (and Spotlight topic) requires. Maybe you’re already part of a community or group that could host a Wee Circle? Or would your employer support you running a Wee Circle at work?
At the end of your discussion, complete the Group Feedback Response Form (below) and Have Your Say.
