Race & Ethnicity
Since 2019, many companies have come together sharing a desire to understand the challenges faced by people from ethnic minorities across Hospitality, Travel and Leisure and to co-create solutions that give Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic employees a voice and a clear path to get to managerial and leadership level. Most companies across HTL are at the beginning of their journey in this area, some have taken steps like introducing blind CVs, others have run surveys among their employees, and over 20 HTL companies have signed the BITC Race at Work Charter. Many leaders are looking for guidance on how to start the conversation about race, how to create genuinely inclusive cultures, how to attract, recruit and retain talent from ethnic minorities and create innovative and practical solutions.
