AudienceDiversity and inclusion practitioners/managers and HR/people/talent management practitioners/managers
Tue, 25 May 2021 @ 10:30 – 12:30
This Champions’ Forum will focus on preliminary findings from Business in the Community’s (BITC) largescale 2021 Race at Work survey.
About the webinar
Sandra Kerr CBE, Race Equality Director, BITC, will share the initial emerging insights before the official publication of the Race at Work survey in October 2021. She will focus on responses to the newly added allyship questions, which will represent one of the largest studies on allyship and race to date.
This webinar is free of charge and open to BITC members who have opted for champion level race advisory support. It is suitable for HR and diversity and inclusion practitioners and managers.
The Race at Work survey is an extensive study, investigating the experiences of employees in the workplace across every demographic group across the UK. The 2021 survey will build upon previous studies – one of the largest of its kind in the UK. The ground-breaking evidence featured in the Race at Work 2015 and Race at Work 2018 Scorecard reports lay the groundwork for the Race at Work Charter, which now has over 550 signatories.
Our 2021 Race at Work survey hopes to capture the changing attitudes in the way employers and their workforce think and talk about race. They survey will help to:
- support employers with understanding the impact of bias in the workplace on recruitment and progression
- better understand workplace cultures and barriers to progression
- gain insight into action on allyship, capturing ethnicity data and ethnicity pay gap reporting
- develop cutting-edge resources to support employers with targeted, meaningful and sustainable action.
The Race agenda at BITC
After 25 years of campaigning for Race Equality in the UK, Business in the Community (BITC) believes every employer must prioritise action on race.
There are two key actions leaders can take today to amplify your commitment to improving equality of opportunity in the workplace.
- Sign the Race at Work Charter
- Capture and publish ethnicity pay gap data
