The recent McGregor-Smith Review looking at Race in the workplace, highlighted that 14% of the UK working age population are from a BME background, with the proportion expected to rise to 21% by 2051.  Yet, statistics from the EHRC 2016 report, Healing a divided Britain suggest that unemployment rates are significantly higher for ethnic minorities at 12.9% compared with 6.3 % for White people.  Black workers with degrees earn 23.1% less on average than White workers.  The report went on to say that significantly lower percentages of ethnic minorities (8.8%) work as managers, directors and senior officials, compared with White people (10.7%).

Given this backdrop, this interactive Conference will bring together Employers, Government officials and thought leaders to discuss and explore the solutions to progress race equality in the workplace.

Hear from industry experts “Leading the Change” in Sectors such as Finance, Health, Legal the Media and Utilities.

Delegates will have the opportunity to consider key challenges and opportunities looking in particular at:

  • Skills and Employment: How employers can influence/develop the skills provision and career development of diverse applicants
  • Attraction: Explore the opportunities presented by Contextualised Recruiting to widen your talent pool
  • Recruitment & Selection: appointing outside of the box, learn what employers are doing to ensure they shortlist from a diverse range of candidates
