Event description

Description

A variety of data sources tell us that we are uncomfortable to talk about race, religion and social grade issues at work. Yet, we know that just such unresolved issues are responsible for why employers still struggle to create a more diverse workforce.

This session explores these generally avoided diversity issues. It aims to raise awareness of key diversity issues, raise awareness of the business case for diversity, and outlines some key ways in which to get started on diversity and inclusion in your organization. The training draws from BITC Race at Work, the largest research about the experiences of BAME in the workplace; BITC Diversity benchmark data and data from Harvard’s Implicit Association Test amongst other sources. Participants take part in real-life scenario exercises and focus discussions. This makes a very direct link between the issues discussed and the context in which participants work.

Duration: 3 hours

Audience: Network events, Line Managers, all staff, HR

Please note this workshop is for BITC Race Partners and BITC Members only (1 credit). If you have not yet renewed your membership onto BITC’s new proposition this is included in your current membership fee.
