Time: to

Egham, Surrey - full details on booking TW20

In partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, this event will look at ways in which organisations can monitor and measure performance and progression towards targets relating to BAME diversity and inclusion.

It is crucial that all organisations collect data to establish their organisational baseline in order to set SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time bound) targets. Many organisations have set internal or external ethnicity targets and others are beginning to publish their ethnicity pay gap. Now is the time for all employers to take a snapshot of their current workforce through monitoring, enabling them to efficiently and effectively target action and resource, track progress and celebrate improvements as they are made.

The event will
  • Facilitate the sharing of good practice effective ethnicity monitoring and target setting
  • Provide the opportunity for Business in the Community Diversity partners to share challenges and solutions relating to the collection, monitoring, measuring and reporting of ethnicity data.
  • Improve diversity practitioners’ knowledge of what effective ethnicity targeting is, and how to overcome barriers to setting and meeting related targets.
  • Introduce BITC Diversity partners to Ethnicity Pay Gap reporting
