AAT is a signatory to the Race at Work Charter
The Race at Work Charter is part of Business in the Community's (BITC) Race at Work campaign. This is an initiative set up to respond to the government-sponsored Race in the workplace: The McGregor-Smith Review in 2017.
A year after the review, BITC published Race at Work 2018: The Scorecard Report, whose findings led them to create the Race at Work Charter, including calls to action for organisations committed to improving equality of opportunity in the workplace.
As a signatory to the charter, we make these commitments.
We've appointed an Executive Sponsor for Race: our Director of Professional Standards and Policy, Adam Harper.
We capture ethnicity data and publicise progress.
We commit at board level to zero tolerance of harassment and bullying.
We make equality, diversity and inclusion the responsibility of all leaders and managers.
We take action that supports Black, Asian, Mixed Race and other ethnically diverse employees' career progression.
We support race inclusion allies in the workplace.
We include Black, Asian, Mixed Race and other ethnically diverse-led enterprise owners in supply chains.
