Race at Work Charter Signatories

  • Appoint an Executive Sponsor for race
    Executive Sponsors for Race provide visible leadership on race and ethnicity in their organisation and can drive key actions such as setting targets for ethnic minority representation, briefing recruitment agencies and supporting mentoring and sponsorship.
  • Capture ethnicity data and publicise progress
    Capturing ethnicity data is important for establishing a baseline and measuring progress. It is also a crucial step towards an organisation being able to report on ethnicity pay.
  • Commit at Board level to zero tolerance of harassment and bullying.
    The Race at Work Survey revealed that 25% of ethnic minority employees reported that they had witnessed or experienced racial harassment or bullying from managers. Commitment from the top is needed to achieve change.
  • Make it clear that supporting equality in the workplace is the responsibility of all leaders and managers.
    Actions can include ensuring that performance objectives for leaders and managers cover their responsibilities to support fairness for all staff.
  • Take action that supports ethnic minority career progression
    Actions can include embedding mentoring, reverse mentoring and sponsorship in their organisations.
