The Race at Work Charter

HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter

British Business Bank signed the Race at Work Charter in March 2021. The Race at Work Charter builds on the work of the 2017 McGregor-Smith Review. The Race at Work Charter is a public commitment to improving the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees in the workplace. It sets out five actions for signatories to take:

  • Appointing an Executive Sponsor for race
  • Capturing data and publicising progress
  • Ensuring zero tolerance of harassment and bullying
  • Making equality in the workplace the responsibility of all leaders and managers
  • Taking action that supports ethnic minority career progression
