Accept – Accept there is really a problem. More data aren’t needed.
Acknowledge – Openly acknowledge that the problem needs to be dealt with.
Apologise – Express sympathy that racism is affecting people of certain races.
Assume – Don’t. Instead develop informed views by seeking to understand individuals.
Action – Take demonstrable action steps to establish equality and be accountable.
