FLOURISHING TOGETHER, CYCLE 3: Conversation Space 4.4 – Responding to the Sewell Report

July 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Conversation Space 4.4 – Responding to the Sewell Report:

Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparity March 2021


We recognise the disappointment, anger and upset the Sewell Report has caused both inside and outside the OD community. We stand in solidarity with the many organisations, institutions, thinktanks and academics who have raised concerns about the limitations of the report and its recommendations.


As OD professionals, our work is to notice and acknowledge the power of structural or systemic forces in organisations and communities and we challenge the individualistic perspective of this report.  We reject too the myth it perpetuates that the harm done by racism is somehow due to the behaviours or culture of the people and communities experiencing racism.


These conversations will offer space for people to process their feelings around the Report and reflect on their options as change agents to advocate and resist, through the use of self and employing the power and privilege each of us holds. Also, to discuss how to support our client systems as they work through the impact of the report on their race equity work.


Sewell Report conversations are open to practitioners and activists outside of the OD community, as well as to OD professionals and those working in EDI in organisations.
