Marsha de Cordova responds to Govt scrapping unconscious bias training for civil service

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, responding to the Government scrapping unconscious bias training for the civil service, said:

“It is deeply worrying that the Government can decide to end a programme seeking to address racism and discrimination in its own workplaces without saying what it’s going to do to combat it instead.

“The Government should have a plan to tackle these inequalities which lead to poor pay, poor career progression, and a lack of diversity at senior levels. Inaction shouldn’t be an option.”
