Tackling Race Discrimination in the Workplace

Racial equality in the workplace is concerned with breaking down the barriers that currently block opportunities for ethnically diverse people. It aims to identify and minimise the barriers that exclude ethnically diverse people and to take action to achieve equal access to all aspects of work for them.


The first step is acknowledging the injustices currently present and expressing your commitment to doing better. It’s critical that there are actions to back up your words or else they’ll remain empty promises. Employers can do this by initiating productive and respectful discussions, forming employee resource groups, training on preventing harassment and discrimination and creating channels where employees feel safe speaking up about racial issues.

Ensuring you have diverse voices represented at all levels of the organisation will help to create an inclusive workplace. Diverse work forces support empathy and compassion between people beyond their race in that the awareness shared during training/development goes on to influence relationships and eventually work practices.
