Central London - full details on booking EC2M

Generously hosted by UBS, this is an opportunity for D&I/HR and Executive Sponsors of BAME inclusion to confidentially discuss common issues and good practice, along with solutions.

This interactive session aims to convene members across sectors who are eager to share their experiences and learn from one another. The theme of this event is Inclusive Succession planning across different sectors. The event will focus on the Race at Work Charter Principle Five, which calls for organisations to; Take action that supports ethnic minority career progression. There will be an emphasis on delegate discussion and the sharing of experiences.
The BITC 2015 Race at Work survey provided us with greater understanding of the issues around the under-representation of ethnic minorities in the workplace and at senior levels. Interest in taking part in a fast track programme is significantly higher amongst Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups, jumping from 18% of white employees who would take part to 40% of BAME employees. However, this is not reflected by greater access to fast track management programmes or inclusion in succession planning for ethnic minority groups. The leadership pipeline of today needs to be populated with sufficient BAME talent to ensure that senior management of the future and workplaces reflect an increasingly diverse working-age population.
The BITC Race at Work Charter calls on organisations to demonstrate a clear public commitment to improving outcomes for ethnic minority people and the Race at Work 2018 survey provides clear evidence for what UK employers need to focus on. The Charter is designed to help organisations take practical steps to ensure they are tackling the barriers that ethnic minority people face in recruitment and progression. It consists of five calls to action for organisations across all sectors. 
This event is designed to benefit Diversity and Inclusion/Human Resources leads and/or Executive Sponsors.
