How to build a racially diverse business
The Black Lives Matter protests have prompted boardroom soul-searching about how to engage a more racially diverse workforce. What are the solutions? And what are the benefits?
The Black Lives Matter protests have prompted boardroom soul-searching about how to engage a more racially diverse workforce. Good intentions have been around for decades and have encouraged much talk about removing biases from mainly white corporate cultures. But this has still not led to the change people want. Hardly any large UK firms have black, Asian or minority ethnic chief executives.
Evan Davis and guests explore the practical solutions to achieving racial equality at work and the potential benefits to the economy.
