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’.

To support employers and people professionals to act upon these recommendations this short guide offers advice to line managers on how they can play their part in tackling racism in their organisation.
