The coalition Government are committed to improving opportunities for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. The Ethnic Minority Employment Task Force was set up in 2003 to drive forward strategies designed to ensure ethnic minorities no longer face disproportionate barriers to achievement in the labour market. Task Force membership includes Ministers from all key departments as this multi-dimensional issue requires a cross-governmental approach.
