Helping employers in the health sector develop ethnically diverse workplaces

This workshop will assist employers in the health and social care sector to embrace ethnic diversity in their workplace.

In particular, we will attempt to address the barriers to recruitment, share best practice in retention and providing support in relation to career progression and development. The workshop will include a presentation(s) 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.
