Statement from Sheffield Chamber of Commerce in response to the Race Equality Commission’s Report which examines race inequality in Sheffield and details seven recommendations that need to be taken by the council and its partners to lead by example and set the standard for others to follow.

Joint Interim Chief Executives Louisa Harrison-Walker and Alexis Krachai said:

“The publication of the report by the Race Equality Commission is a historic moment for the city. The issues highlighted must be addressed as a priority. The recommendations could not be clearer. Things must fundamentally change, and we all have a role to play in making that happen.

“In Sheffield Chamber, the challenge is clear. We must listen. We must act. We must and will become antiracist. The work starts with us looking in the mirror and admitting we have much to do.

“In the days and weeks ahead, we will consider the report in full. It forms a measurable, rapid improvement plan and we will set out how we will implement the recommendations and how we are committed to playing a role in helping Sheffield to banish racism and racial disparities from our city.”
