Business in the Community charter: Race at Work

Business in the Community

Figures from the Race Disparity Audit’s Ethnicity Facts and Figures website and the BITC Race at Work Survey highlight that people from ethnic minorities persistently encounter significant disparities in employment and progression.

Business in the Community have launched the Race at Work Charter, in October 2018, which commits businesses who sign up to a set of principles and actions designed to improve the recruitment and progression of ethnic minority employees.

The Equality Trust manifestos: For a Fairer UK

‘The UK is one of the most unequal countries in the developed world’ says the March 2018 Equality Trust manifesto.

Equality Trust have published their National, Local and Individual Manifestos designed to help people across the UK take action to reduce inequality. 

The manifestos states: 

We must protect and progress workers’ rights: strengthen trade union rights
and introduce employment rights from day one
We must explore the most effective ways of distributing wealth fairly and
efficiently: establish an independent Commission on Wealth
We must end child poverty: reinstate child poverty targets and commit to
eliminating child poverty
We must tackle our housing crisis: establish a large scale house building
programme, prioritising social housing and truly affordable housing,
built to high quality and environmentally friendly standards.
