As part of our support and active engagement in celebration of Black History Month we are proud to partner with our colleagues at the UN Global Compact UK Network.
Our Group Head of Human Resources, Marcia Jones will be appearing as a guest panelist on the Black Lives Matter & Business Webinar series on October 28th @ 2pm
This event will explore the best practices and actions for fostering workplace inclusion and retention of Black talent.
“A lack of equality policies can lead to greater staff turnover rates, with an associated loss of talent. Investing in and committing to diversity in the workplace is therefore essential to retaining Black talent within organisations.
This event, proudly supported by frontier and emerging market specialists Crown Agents Bank, will explore the best practices and actions for fostering workplace inclusion and retention of Black colleagues. Its objectives are:
Learning how your organisation can retain Black talent by being welcoming and inclusive
- Understanding which steps all employees can take to be more inclusive of Black people and Black cultures in the workplace
- Exploring best practices to retain Black talent, including but not limited to creating leadership connection opportunities, employee resource groups and networks, and having open and honest dialogue about race and ethnicity in the workplace”
