The recent government-commissioned report from the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities recommended that the term ‘BAME’ should not be used by organisations and public bodies. The acronym stands for ‘Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic’ and has become commonly used in recent years but which has the effect of categorising, even marginalising, Black and Asian people, and those from other ethnic minorities, into one group.
So how can individual managers get the terminology right when talking about race in the workplace? After all, having empathetic conversations with colleagues about race, no matter how uncomfortable, is a key part of developing an anti-racist organisation.
