The CIPD’s reports on Race Inclusion showed that the role of line managers is key in tackling discrimination in the workplace and in embedding anti-racism strategy. This was particularly true when examining career progression, as the research showed that ‘good line management was a major factor in achieving career progression and that poor line management had acted as a barrier’.
