Race equality: getting uncomfortable and sustaining change
Play • 24 min

What does a diverse business have that a less diverse one does not? How do organisations address race equality in the workplace, and sustain it to deliver long term benefits? In our latest podcast we address these issues, and more. This frank and open discussion draws on the insights and experiences of Susan Clews, Acas Chief Executive; Julie Dennis, Acas Head of Diversity and Inclusion; and Afifa Kiran, Co-Chair of the Acas Race Equality Network and Acas workplace adviser, with Nike Siffre asking the questions. We look at: 

  • Why invest in change? What’s in it for organisations?
  • Making change long term, rather than tokenistic
  • How to handle uncomfortable conversations about race
  • Tips for small businesses
