How do we normalise standing up against racism and bias at work?
The allegations of racism made by Azeem Rafiq against current and former members of Yorkshire County Cricket Club are deeply troubling. Likewise, so are the anti-Semitic tweets posted by Rafiq 10 years ago that have subsequently emerged.

For too long people have been allowed to make biased remarks under the guise of banter. I’ve seen first-hand how this has impacted countless British Asians throughout the pandemic.
