Race at Work | Promoting Race Equality in the Health & Social Care Sector

This Race at Work event is aimed at employers in the health & social care sector and will provide advice and guidance on recruitment, retention and developing an ethnically diverse workplace.

In particular, we will address the barriers to recruitment, share best practice in retention, and provide support in relation to career progression and development. The workshop will include presentations from those who are actively addressing these issues.

We will explore the specific challenges facing this sector and how creating inclusive workplaces can enhance experiences of ethnically diverse colleagues and make the sector more competitive.

Participants will be introduced to Business in the Community’s Race at Work Charter, a positive step employers can take when promoting an inclusive workplace. The Equality Commission will also discuss their Racial Equality Action Plan, an additional resource that employers can avail of.

This event is open to members and non-members of Business in the Community.
