This course looks at the legal requirements to combat work-related race discrimination and provides a template for addressing them effectively.

Over 10% of the UK workforce is made up of people of an ethnic minority – and this number is growing. UK businesses are fortunate to have a current and expanding pool of racially diverse talent that brings varied and wide-ranging experiences and perspectives to an organisation.

However, recent statistics indicate a substantially lower employment rate for people from an ethnic minority. Whilst the reasons for this may be complex, Government reports suggest that a large contributor to this under-employment is discrimination.

So clearly, despite improving attitudes and behaviours, race discrimination is still a problem in the workplace.

This course is aimed at everyone within an organisation.
