Race at Work Charter
Business in the Community's Race at Work Charter asks businesses to make a public commitment to improving equality of opportunity in the workplace.
In 2017 The government-sponsored Race in the workplace: The McGregor-Smith Review found that Black, Asian, Mixed Race and other ethnically diverse people staff still encounter significant disparities in employment and progression and that greater progress and positive outcomes are needed to ensure all organisations benefit from the wealth of diverse talent on offer. BITC’s Race at Work 2018: The Scorecard Report was published one year after the McGregor-Smith Review to look at how UK employers performed against the recommendations outlined in the review.
The findings led BITC to create the Race at Work Charter, with five calls to action to improve race equality, inclusion and diversity in the workplace. In 2021 the Charter was expanded to include allyship and inclusive supply chain commitments, meaning signatory organisations are now asked to make seven commitments.
