Following the approach we set out in the Government response, we have been working with Business in the Community in supporting companies to make the necessary changes to make their workplaces more inclusive. This includes the development of a simple guide on how to discuss race in the workplace, ensuring easy access to an online portal of best practice and celebrating success through a list of the top 100 BME employers.

We also intend that the new Diversity and Inclusion Group will provide a forum to discuss progress as well as identify emerging issues and opportunities, and provide a sounding board for new ideas. This will be chaired by a BEIS Minister, and bring together key business leaders. We are delighted that the noble lady has agreed to be part of the group.
