Join other Business in the Community (BITC) Wellbeing and Race partners to discuss what race and wellbeing means for your organisation and how you’re working to close the inequality gap.

This event is only open to BITC’s wellbeing and race partners. If you do not have one of these partnerships with us, sign up anyway and we will be in touch. Alternatively, email Ellie Jefford. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Spaces are limited to one place per organisation.

We have reached a tipping point with increased awareness of the #BlackLivesMatter campaign and inequality in society. But the issues openly discussed now have deep roots and racism will not disappear without consistent, intentional action.

BITC’s 2019 report Mental Health at Work: Time to Take Ownership, found that while overall, almost two in five (39%) employees had experienced poor mental health within the past year where work was a contributing factor, this rose to almost one in two (47%) for black, Asian and minority ethnic employees.

After 25 years of campaigning for race equality in the UK, Business in the Community (BITC) believes every employer must prioritise action on race.

BITC defines “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 an organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving business and thriving communities.
