IN-Ren (Integration Network Renfrewshire)
IN-Ren is a forum for people from minority ethnic backgrounds, where they are recognised and acknowledged as experts of their own lived experiences, insights and opinions. It is a forum where agencies (organisations and services) are invited to present, listen and learn about institutional racism. Racism may be present in the form of barriers, ignorance, complacency or other forms. Agencies are then responsible for making changes or improvements to address institutional racism.

All you need to bring is a willingness to share your thoughts and experiences of life in Renfrewshire as a person from a minority ethnic background, as well as an enthusiasm for making suggestions for positive change and improvement.
