'Reams of EDI Policies and refined rhetoric are rife now, but true action is what needs to be measured'.

What People Say About BASE X
I just love how BASE X is creating a culturally familiar 'Grapevine'
environment without any apologetic behaviour for Global Majority networks with 'an each one teach one' philosophy..
A truly inspiring unique project. Creating the necessary environment to tackle systemic inequity through constructive fearless dialogue and true representation of BAME communities.
In my humble opinion, BASE has become a movement of the people and a motivator for the unification of communities of colour to work more collaboratively instead of competitively.
Well, for me, it was the feeling of being a part of a larger family. Having an entity that is there to support my organisation with funding information, governance and connectivity through its large grapevine..
As a director of a large Black organisation myself, I totally admire and respect the fact that BASE X is 'belief led' and not 'funding led'. I feel, this is one of the reasons that BASE X in a way, is uncontrollable by the authorities in what they say and do. In particular, their unique, open style of challenging Systemic Racism without fearing any repercussions!
