The Race Inclusion reports, which are informed by CIPD research (conducted between 29 November 2019 and 10 January 2020), discuss the ways in which employers and the HR community can act to eliminate racism in the workplace. Employers are in a strong position to make an impact, through actions such as reducing discrimination, training line managers, establishing employee network groups, and building trust with people from all ethnic minority backgrounds.

The series looks at three key areas that employers need to consider in order to make progress towards improving race inclusion and equality in the workplace:

  • talking about race at work
  • ethnicity disclosure and reporting
  • career progression inequalities

This executive summary gives an overview of the key findings of each Race Inclusion report, as well as presenting recommendations for employers and policy makers based on these findings.
