Come to this peer learning forum prepared to share what your organisation is doing to support the mental health and wellbeing of Black, Asian and minority ethnic women in the workplace. Share the challenges you face when addressing how race and gender affect your employees’ wellbeing, and learn from the experiences of your peers. 

Black, Asian and mixed race women experience higher rates of common mental health disorders than white women1.  This peer learning forum will be an opportunity for organisations to share how they address the unique mental health and wellbeing challenges faced by Black, Asian and ethnic minority women at work. Business in the Community (BITC), will provide a briefing for attendees on forthcoming resources providing practical tools that are essential for inclusive workplace leaders and managers.

This race, gender and wellbeing peer learning forum will cover:

  • Inclusive leadership: race, wellbeing and ethnic minority women
  • Key recommendations for line managers
  • Discussion: how are you fostering everyday inclusion for Black, Asian and minority ethnic women in your organisation?

About BITC’s work on wellbeing

BITC believes in businesses taking a whole system approach to health and wellbeing of their employees. We define ‘wellbeing’ as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.

Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue, supporting thriving businesses, thriving people and thriving communities.

Everyday inclusion

BITC’s Everyday Inclusion campaign is designed to support employers in ensuring their employees feel they belong, have a voice, are valued and are able to be their true selves. Research shows that over half of UK employees regularly experience non-inclusive behaviours, directly impacting wellbeing and wider performance.
