This webinar will explain the value of monitoring employee diversity, show the best ways to encourage disclosure and demonstrate how the information can be used to improve racial equality in the workplace.

Why capture ethnicity data
Capturing ethnicity data and publicising progress is the second call to action in Business in the Community’s (BITC) Race at Work Charter. Capturing data is important for establishing a baseline and measuring progress. It is a crucial step towards an organisation reporting on ethnicity pay differentials. Ethnicity pay gap reporting helps hold employers accountable for any disparities between different ethnic groups, draws attention to specific areas of concern, and drives a case for action to be taken to mitigate these imbalances.

Mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting is the first call to action in Business in the Community’s (BITC’s) Race at Work: The Black Voices report. The report uses previously unpublished data from YouGov and BITC’s 2018 Race At Work survey to shine a light on the specific challenges faced by Black colleagues in the workplace.

This event is open to both Business in the Community (BITC) members and non-members. It is designed to support signatories of the Race at Work Charter.
