First reflective article introducing Racial Equity workshops published

3 February 2021

We are excited to announce the first in a new series of Reflective Articles has been published on the website, under the Racial Equity Social Justice (RESJ) Committee section.

These articles are personal responses to the 2021 Racial Equity workshops led by Nikkia Young and on the intersection of DDP with racial and social justice.

This month’s article, called ‘January Reflection’, is an introduction to the series by a member of the RESJ Committee. It describes the author’s excitement at the start of our proactive work to “organizationally remove racism” within DDP, and their reflections as a White therapist on the forming of DDPI and subsequent realisations after anti-racism training.

We will be publishing one or two reflective articles each month in 2021, as a part of the ongoing work to reach out to and engage with all members of our community. This an integral component of DDPI and DDP Connects UK’s joint commitment to social justice and equity for all.

More information about the RESJ Committee can be found in our new Community section, along with the Global Development Committee.
