Race Equality Week is an annual UK-wide movement uniting thousands of organisations and individuals to address the barriers to race equality in the workplace. The theme for 2023 is #ItsEveryonesBusiness because tackling race inequality is everyone’s business.
We are privileged to have Sandra Kerr CBE join us to drive this conversation.
Sandra Kerr CBE works together with business leaders and government policy makers to influence action on race in the UK.
Prior to working at Business in the Community Sandra worked for DWP and the Cabinet Office. Between 2012 and 2016, Sandra chaired the DWP Ethnic Minority Employment Stakeholder Group, advising the Government on employment barriers facing individuals from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
More than 24,000 responses to the Race at Work surveys in 2015, 2018 and 2021 provided the evidence to establish the Race at Work Charter which now has more than 950 employer signatories. Sandra sits on the Royal Society Diversity Committee, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) Strategic Advisory Board and the Cabinet Office Race Board. In 2022 and 2023 Sandra is collaborating with Professors from Queen Mary University and University of Birmingham reviewing thematic insights and rends emerging from the Race at Work 2015, 2018 and 2021 surveys.
Sandra is a big advocate of mentorship, sponsorship and allyship.
Come and be educated, empowered and inspired.
