Creating an inclusive culture cannot be done with a broad paintbrush. Advancing diversity in the workplace requires intentionality across the specific dimensions to identify the greatest challenges faced by different groups. The Race at Work Charter was established in collaboration with the UK Government and a business-led membership organisation, Business in the Community. The goal is to identify and address the disparities ethnic minorities encounter in employment and progression to ensure that organisations are leveraging the widest pool of talent to increase business performance. This 2019 report shares the stories of actions that generate results from over 100 employers.

The report details snapshots of case studies in each of the five Calls to Action:

  • Appoint an Executive Sponsor for Race
  • Capture ethnicity data and publicise progress
  • Commit at Board level to zero tolerance of harassment and bullying
  • Make clear that supporting equality in the workplaces is the responsibility of all leaders and managers
  • Take actions that supports ethnic minority career progression
