Sharing a confidential preview of diverse and inclusive supply chain survey results and discussion on new ‘Voices from Race at Work’ report.


This event is open to Race Champions.

This Champions Forum will update attendees on the progress of the supplier diversity and inclusive supply chain project. As well as other projects, including our collaboration with Youth Futures Foundation to look into providing more significant support to young people, in order to help them access work and progress within the workplace.

About this event

This is an exciting phase of Business in the Community’s (BITC) race campaign’s work, and we are keen to share information on opportunities and collaborations that will form part of the race campaign’s strategic forward plan for 2024/2025.

With BITC Director for Race, Sandra Kerr CBE, this event will:

  • Share and discuss good practices on implementing calls to action from the ‘Voices from Race at Work’ thematic review report, due to be published soon.
  • Share a confidential early preview of diverse and inclusive supply chain YouGov survey results, and insights into the next steps and phase two.
  • Provide feedback on strategic leadership and direction from the BITC Race Leadership Team.
  • Preview new, in-development projects.

  • BITC is working to ensure all employees feel they belong, have a voice, are valued and can be their true selves.
  • For more than 25 years, BITC has been campaigning and helping organisations to ensure Black, Asian, Mixed Race and other ethnically diverse employees are represented at all levels.
  • We will be discussing the actions required to dismantle policies and practices that enable systemic racism and discrimination to manifest themselves in the workplace. We will also explore how to replace this with policies and practices free from bias.
