RAW is a volunteer-led anti-racism and equality initiative by BADLANDS.

We educate the industry on how racism at work can play out through storytelling and sharing people of colour’s lived experiences.

Whilst also working toward bettering people of colour’s mental health in our industry.

Our overall aim is to ensure that they and future generations can bring their best selves to work and achieve their full potential.

We believe this can not be truly realised without empathising with these experiences.

RAW began in 2020, as an anonymous survey called ‘have you ever experienced racism at work?’
We’ve used the responses from the survey to create meaningful campaigns.

Thank you to all of our partners so far.


Can you spot the joke?

Social Media


We invite you to share your experiences, so that it reaches people outside of our echo chamber and is used to nurture much needed change towards truly inclusive places of work.

Please note that the responses will be treated as completely anonymous when published.
