I guess many of you would have listened to the discussion about the recent survey undertaken around Ethnicity Facts and Figures the new site now live contains thousands of statistics covering more than 130 topics in areas including employment, health, education, and criminal justice.
One of the key findings is that employment rates are higher for white people than for ethnic minorities across the country, with a larger gap in the north (13.6%) than in the south (9%).
The audit has also highlighted that: ethnic minorities are under-represented at senior levels across the public sector; unemployment among black, Asian and other ethnic minorities is almost double that of white British adults.
What do you think HR's role is in this?
It may be that in addition to gender pay gap reporting that all businesses may be required to publish data on ethnicitiy gaps what are your thoughts on this?
All the best
