Baroness McGregor-Smith is leading an independent review to look at the obstacles faced by Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) individuals when trying to progress at work. The key issues under consideration are:

  • What is the impact on the UK economy as a whole of having more BME people represented at every level of the workforce?
  • What are the obstacles that BME people face?
  • What data currently exists on BME people in the workplace and how do employers use it?
  • What are some of the examples of best practice across the UK?
