RACE EQUALITY LEADERSHIP TEAM - Business in the Community


Race, equality, equity, diversity and inclusion


The purpose of Business in the Community’s (BITC) Race Equality Leadership Team is to support employers to help break down the barriers that prevent the progression of ethnic minorities in their workplaces. They act as leaders showing how an inclusive organisation better serves its customers, clients and communities.
