Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002
What percentage of civil servants employed by the Scottish Government organisation are BAME (black Asian and minority ethnic people) and what their target is. I can’t seem to find anything on the government website about this however I have found a uk government one.
The target of the Scottish Government is to increase in diversity to reflect the general Scottish Population by 2025 which for ME is 5%. At September 2020, of Scottish Government core employees who have shared their ethnicity data with us, 2.9% identified as black, Asian and minority ethnic.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
