What is expected of employers in 2021?

From attracting and retaining diverse talent to improving workplace culture and diversity on boards, there are many challenges facing employers when it comes to improving diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Collating data about your workforce is an important and key part of any diversity and inclusion strategy. Without it, how can you understand issues and trends, track progress, highlight areas where you want to focus and inform future strategy? But how can you lawfully collect and use diversity and inclusion data under the GDPR? And how can you encourage your employees to give you what may be sensitive information that they may want to keep private?

And once you understand your data and where you are, and you have identified areas where you want to focus – how can you actually improve diversity and inclusion? What are the boundaries between unlawful direct discrimination, and lawful positive action? What does positive action look like in practice? And how do you avoid any unlawful "shortcuts" to improving diversity?

Our webinar explored the issues and how you can solve them.


  • The starting point – your diversity data – why you need it, why you need to track it, and how you can lawfully gather it
  • Taking your employees with you – how you can encourage your colleagues to provide their data to you
  • The journey – how you set targets (and our views on quotas), and how you put in place an action plan to achieve them through lawful positive action
  • Avoiding the risks – how you avoid unlawful discrimination along your journey
  • The end point – accepting there probably isn't one, but how to achieve your goals, before setting new ones, and being ready for ethnicity pay reporting (and any other pay reporting)
