This webinar will support employers with developing and sustaining allyship programmes to support the inclusion of their ethnic minority colleagues.

About the webinar
The webinar will demonstrate the best ways to educate the wider workforce on race, encourage buy-in from across the organisation and develop highly impactful workplace interventions and training programmes.

Those attending will hear first-hand from employers sharing some of the innovative practical actions taken to create impactful allyship tools, with a focus on content, communication and taking an employee-centred approach.

Audience
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. The event is also suitable for anyone who is interested in allyship, including HR managers, black, Asian and ethic minority network chairs and responsible business practitioners.

Background
In 2018, 33% of black employees felt that their ethnicity would be a barrier to their next career move; in stark contrast, only 1% of white employees feel the same. Moreover, 28% of black employees said that they had witnessed or experienced racial harassment from managers compared to only 13% of white employees¹. This stark difference in lived experience across ethnicities is both a symptom and a cause of racial inequities at work. Allyship can be a powerful tool to close this gap through starting meaningful conversations about race and empowering employees to take actions that will support equality and inclusion.
