The importance of mentoring in achieving race diversity cannot be underestimated. Studies have been made and published in journals as revered as the Harvard Business Review which confirm this. The plain fact is ethnic minorities who advance the furthest in their career all share one characteristic—a strong network of mentors and corporate sponsors who nurture their professional development.
Latest research and statistics tell us that the UK workforce is diverse, as is the emerging and future workforce - 1-6 of UK domiciled graduates at UK universities are from an ethnic minority background; 1 in 5 of young people in secondary school education are from an ethnic minority background and a quarter, 1 in 4 of children in primary school education are from an ethnic minority background. The reason why your organisation should get involved in attracting, recruiting, retaining and progressing ethnic minority talent, is commonly known as the 'business case for race'.
