The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) have produced a March 2018 digital toolkit based on their Integrated Communities Strategy Green Paper.
This resource has been created to facilitate conversations and gather feedback on the Government’s vision for building integrated communities.
The Social Mobility Commission has a vital role to play in “[putting] the Government’s feet to the fire” – but changes need to be made.
Business in the Community have launched a February 2018 survey to build further on the findings of their 2015 survey, Race at Work.
They are keen to hear from all ethnicities – everyone aged 16 and over, employed or self-employed in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).
The survey questions examine the following workplace issues:
How to talk about race
Pay gap monitoring and reporting
Workplace bullying and harassment
The survey takes approximately 13 minutes to complete.
Complete the survey.
