The Scottish Government is determined to show leadership in advancing race equality, tackling racism and addressing the barriers that prevent people from minority ethnic communities from realising their potential. The Race Equality Framework for Scotland sets out how Scottish Government aims to progress this ambition over a fifteen year period from 2016 to 2030.
To achieve this, the Race Equality Framework for Scotland will take a long-term, partnership based approach, working with all sections of society including the Scottish Parliament, public sector bodies and agencies and established networks and forums, voluntary sector equality bodies and communities.
The actions needed to eradicate racism are not just for the Scottish Government alone. Every individual and organisation in Scotland needs to play their role in creating a fair and equal Scotland that protects and includes people from all background, whatever their ethnicity may be . This matters to each of us and we all have a role to play across every ethnicity, every sector and every community.
