While there has been a significant decline in overt racist behaviours over the past 40 or 50 years, subtle manifestations of racial bias continue to have a negative impact on people from an ethnic minority background. With studies showing that racial bias, prejudice and discrimination are still a problem in many organisations, inclusive employers are recognising the need to engage with the issue at a grass-roots level to ensure that policies and procedures are fair and transparent and that everyone is able to discuss race in an open and constructive way.
This webinar covered:
- how we define ‘racism’ and ‘racial bias’ and the changing nature of racism
- the impact of racial and cultural stereotypes
- how racial bias can impact workplace processes, such as recruitment and selection, onboarding and promotion
- ways in which racial bias can be displayed in workplace behaviours
- how to find out whether racial bias is a problem in your organisation
- tips for leaders and all staff for tackling racial bias at work.
Modern racism is far more subtle, it's indirect, it's oblique - and it's far more difficult for others who are not on the receiving end of it to detect.Professor Binna Kandola OBESenior Partner, Pearn Kandola LLP
