''Getting race in the workplace right could deliver a £24bn boost to the UK economy, 1.5% GDP. This cannot be achieved without employers taking
action to ensure fair access to opportunities and better outcomes for BAME women in the workplace''. Sandra Kerr OBE, Business in the Community Race Equality Director.
24,457 UK workers took part in the Business in the Community Race at Work Survey. This insight paper compares the responses of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women to white women, to five key questions posed in the Race at Work survey relating to their experiences of career progression in the UK workplace. All the data used comes from the YouGov statistically valid and weighted sample of 6,076 respondents who completed Business in the Community's Race at Work survey between 28 July - 14 September 2015. This document takes account of the 1,496 women who stated they belonged to a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) group and the 1,478 women who stated their ethnic group as white. The percentages given are for 'Net Agree' or 'Net Disagree'. Where there is a significant three percentage point difference between responses, these have been highlighted with a circle.
