Focus on leadership

We are focussing on leadership and its vital role in creating diverse and inclusive organisations.

We will examine how societal and structural racism continues to impact on BAME employee progression. We will also focus on the business case for inclusion and focus on the role of leadership in breaking down the barriers that currently exist.

The resources are designed to provide an insight into the issues that BAME employees face but will also provide some tangible solutions that can be readily employed to overcome them.

Make use of specialist recruitment agencies

To recruit diverse talent organisations can make use of specialised advertising routes such as diversity consultancy Rare Recruitment which specialise in placing highly educated ethnic minority graduates into high-quality positions.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service has a partnership arrangement with Inclusive Companies, and as part of the membership they get unlimited jobs listings on their diversity jobs pages.

Although not necessarily limited to management roles, platforms like these challenge negative social norms and is successfully impacting the job market to create greater inclusion.
