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.
