Leading the Change on Minority Ethnic Workers

  • 19th October 2017
  • 09:15 - 12:30
  • BAE Systems – Naval Ships, 1581 South Street, Scotstoun, Glasgow G14 0XN, UK

Places are limited to two individuals per organisation, and are issued on a first come, first served basis.

This is a free event, however there will be a £50 plus VAT admin charge for non-attendance or cancellations received less than 5 days prior to the event.

The recent McGregor-Smith Review looking at Race in the workplace, highlighted that 14% of the UK working age population are from a Minority Ethnic (ME) background, with the proportion expected to rise to 21% by 2051.  Yet, statistics from the EHRC 2016 report, Healing a divided Britain suggest that unemployment rates are significantly higher for ethnic minorities at 12.9% compared with 6.3% for White people. 

Given this backdrop, this roundtable event will look at what can be done to attract, recruit and retain Minority Ethnic workers. We will look at:

  • Some of the latest research on facts relating to skills and employment for the ME population
  • Hear case studies from Police Scotland, EY and BAE on work that has been done to support Minority Ethnic workers
  • Have a chance to participate in interactive debate led by BEMIS to look at practical solutions and actions that employers can take to work towards developing an inclusive community and attracting and retaining ME reflective of the local population

This roundtable will be an excellent opportunity to network with other organisations as well as be part of a facilitated roundtable that will give you a chance to explore issues relating to Minority Ethnic workers in your workplace.


This session will be hosted BAE Systems – Naval Ships and chaired by Joan Stuart who is our Member Engagement Manager responsible for supporting Member organisations within Scotland and north of England with their diversity and inclusion agendas. 

Joan will also be joined by EY, Police Scotland and BEMIS who were established in 2001 and is the Scotland’s umbrella body supporting the inclusion, integration and development of ethnic minorities in Scotland.


The event will be hosted by BAE Systems – Naval Ships

Anyone interested in recruiting and developing Minority Ethnic workers in the workplace.
