Join us at this event to explore the steps that business can take to increase race inclusion and diversity at senior leadership level.
One of the key aims of Business in the Community's race equality campaign and network of employers is to increase the number of people from a BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) background in leadership, on boards and at executive level and to increase the number of senior champions and executive sponsors for race within organisations.
- Only one in 16 people from a BAME background are in a senior leadership position, contrasting strongly with the rapidly changing demographic of the working age population.
- Only one in three employees stated1 their organisation has a senior champion.
Recently published reviews including the Parker Review (2016) "A report into Ethnicity on UK Boards" and the McGregor-Smith Review (2017) " Race in the Workplace" create a further spotlight on the need for practical action by employers. An activity step-change is necessary if all ethnic minority groups are to be represented in senior management across the UK.
This round table event will explore the actions employers have successfully taken to achieve positive results and offer guidance in identifying the areas where additional support is needed.
