Our expert panel will consider how we can discuss issues relating to race and ethnicity in the workplace in an authentic way and provide practice tips for HR professionals, line managers and lawyers.

This year, HR professionals, line managers and in house lawyers have had to confront issues relating to race and ethnicity in the workplace in a new way as a result of a number of world events, not least the Black Lives Matter movement. For some of us, this has involved having conversations on topics where we may feel we don’t have the relevant experience or knowledge to say or do the right thing or to make a valid contribution. Our expert panel will consider how we can discuss these issues in an authentic way and provide practical tips for HR professionals and in house lawyers on how to engage with this topic with colleagues.

Agenda/Programme: 

Topics

• Consider how we can discuss these issues in an authentic way, whilst ensuring that our potential discomfort does not prevent us from contributing to discussions on this crucial topic.

• Provide practical insight to HR professionals and lawyers on how to deal with situations involving racism and how organisations might go about collecting data relating to race.

• Suggest strategies for how to deal with situations where, despite our best intentions, the wrong thing is said or done.
