Black Lives Matter
The death of George Floyd was truly shocking, even more so as the world witnessed it on film. The Cheltenham Trust recognises how important it is to make sure that Black Lives Matter and that it respects that everyone is equal irrespective of the colour of their skin.
As an organisation we embrace, and are committed, to diversity and inclusion. Covid-19 is already challenging cultural organisations like the Trust which is a charity and has had to respond swiftly and flexibly to the current crisis.
The horrific death of George Floyd has sharpened our focus on our responsibility to stand up for what is right to confront racism. We are committed to continually learning and growing as an organisation and our newly formed culture and community committee has this high on its agenda.
