Race and equality in the workplace

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Thursday 2 December, 9:30 - 10:15

It’s been over 50 years since we have seen race discrimination legislation come into effect in Britain and yet too many individuals from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups still face discrimination and disadvantage compared with their white British peers. Employers who take action to support equal progression and participation, across ethnicities, will grow their talent pool and boost business performance by addressing skill shortages in the process.

In this topical talk, Esther and Oscar will walk you through:

  • The protections provided by the Equality Act 2010

  • Provide you with some salutary tales from recent case law

  • Discuss the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement on the workplace
