The Race at Work campaign was established by HRH the Prince of Wales in 1995 with the support of key business leaders who recognised the demographic shift in existing and future populations. It brings together expertise from a network of private and public sector partners to offer tailored advice and share new insights to drive long-term change.

The Race at Work Charter is a public commitment to improving the experiences of black, Asian and minority ethnic employees in the workplace. It sets out five actions for employers.
