For the second year in succession, the Department for Education has been recognised for its leadership on race equality and inclusion in the workplace by being included in Business in the Community's (BITC) Best Employers for Race listing, published (30 October 2018).
Department for Education is one of 70 employers included in the 2018 listing which was first piloted in 2017 following a recommendation from the government-backed McGregor-Smith Review of race in the workplace.
To be considered for the listing, employers must demonstrate that they are putting leadership on race in place within their organisation, creating inclusive workplace cultures and taking action on leadership, progression and/or recruitment. They must also show how their policies are positively impacting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) employees within their organisations.
