Delivering diversity

Race and ethnicity in the management pipeline.

Business leaders need to learn how to talk about race and ethnicity issues. We’re still a long, long way back from where we are now with gender.

Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people are under-represented in business and especially in management roles.

It’s time for change.

Our research explores how businesses are working to increase diversity throughout the management pipeline.

Around 12.5% of the UK population are BAME yet they hold just 6% of top management positions. Closing this representation gap is an urgent challenge – and a major opportunity, which could add £24bn to the economy annually. But could managers do more to deliver diversity?
