A key recommendation in the McGregor-Smith Review into Race in the Workplace was that a guide talking about race should be published. This guide features findings from the Race at Work survey responses of more the 7,000 people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background (BAME) backgrounds alongside insights from conversations between employers, individuals and Sandra Kerr OBE, Business in the Community Race Equality Director, author of the pocket guide.
The Business in the Community Race at Work survey provided evidence that employees from all ethnic backgrounds in the UK were more likely to report that their employers were not comfortable talking about race. This is a barrier to progress. We need to acknowledge, identify, discuss and seek to understand an issue if we are to get to solutions that effectively tackle the challenges and make the best of the opportunities.
