In October 2018 the Government announced a series of measures to tackle ethnic disparities in the workplace. As part of this, the Prime Minister announced the launch of a consultation, inviting employers to share their views on a mandatory approach to ethnicity pay reporting.

The CIPD has hosted a series of roundtable discussions in London, Manchester, Leicester, Edinburgh, and Cardiff to gather member views on the potential challenges, approaches, and processes that ethnicity pay reporting could bring. As well as this, the CIPD created a survey for HR professionals and consultants which received more than 240 responses.
