This report shows how businesses and communities can reap the benefits of a wealthier and more integrated society through their commitment to promoting race equality.
Between 1999 and 2009, ethnic minority communities will rise from 6.7 per cent to 8 per cent of the total working-age population, accounting for half of its growth. At the same time, racial discrimination is preventing businesses from reaping the benefits of diversity, including in relation to their workforces, supply chains and customer bases.
While no one solution fits all, for large and small businesses alike, this report outlines a change model for action focused on the following areas: leadership; education, information, and advice; incentives and rewards; and measuring progress.
This report is for anyone striving to ensure that talent does not get wasted in an ever increasingly competitive economy, and that businesses and communities can reap the benefits of wealthier and more integrated society through their commitment to promoting race equality.
