Robust external governance and oversight is a key aspect of the government’s approach to race equality. An interim governance group will be established by October 2021. This group will provide oversight and accountability for:
- Delivery of the Immediate Priorities Plan
- The strategic review and subsequent work to establish the programme of systemic change (see section 9)
These arrangements will aim to provide independent oversight of the IPP and of the strategic review work. These arrangements will operate until the creation of a permanent governance body for ongoing long-term race equality work in 2022.
The IPP will conclude with a full report detailing delivery of outlined priorities against initial commitments, highlighting key learning from the period covered by the IPP.
