Let’s Talk About Race: Creating an Inclusive Workplace Culture
The 2018 Race in the Workplace Survey revealed that only 38% of employees believed their employers felt comfortable talking about race in the workplace. The global impact and ripple effect of the Black Lives Matter movement is being felt keenly in many UK based workplaces. Many organisations are now trying to navigate the best way to ensure that they create and maintain more inclusive workplace cultures where all employees can thrive.
With so much public discussion on racial injustice, privilge, inclusion and allyship all over social media, it can be very easy for employers who want to do more, to feel overwhelmed. Left unchecked that overwhelm can easily lead to no action being taken in workplaces.
This bespoke webinar has been created by a leading ethnicity pay gap specialist dedicated to helping organisations hold more productive and honest conversations about inclusion in the workplace.
In this 60 minute webinar, delegates can expect to:
- Understand terminology such as anti-racism, white privilege, allyship and inclusion.
- Understand the difference between equality and equity.
- Be aware of what inclusion looks like in practical terms.
- Have practical ways to become better workplace allies for Black and Asian colleagues.
How it works:
- Capacity: 50 people or up to 100 virtually
- Length: 60 minutes.
- Requirements: A screen for some slides. A zoom link will be sent out for webinar bookings.
- Your facilitator: A fully certified and highly experienced gender and ethnicity consultant with over 12 years experience of working at the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
10% of all profits from this workshop will be donated to Black Minds Matter, a charity that connects Black individuals and families with free professional mental health services across the UK.
‘I really appreciated the opportunity to speak openly with you and the other participants about white privilege and allyship. I am grateful to have heard your stories and insights into the issues raised. I thought the discussions were led really well, excellently structured, and very useful. I came away feeling glad I took the opportunity to speak and to learn; and inspired to continue to take action. Thank you, Michelle, for creating this space for us all’.

“100% of attendees deemed this webinar ‘excellent’. Michelle was very credible and inclusive. She didn’t make us feel bad or put us on the back foot (although I felt a bit sheepish at the start given my low level of knowledge on the topic.)”
