Race recruitment and retention - an instigation for change: action plan

Our race recruitment and retention action plan details the action we will take to deliver our vision to be a world-leading diverse employer where racial equality is achieved. The Plan’s anti-racist approach covers five priorities to redistribute power and foster cultural change.

Embedding Responsibility and Accountability

There is ownership of the plan at individual, corporate and leadership levels, and people are taking effective action to implement the Race Recruitment and Retention Action Plan. 

We know that we can only be successful in delivering the change we need to see when race equality is everyone’s business. Increasing accountability was a strong theme in our engagement and evidence gathering, with stakeholders calling for senior leaders in particular to be held to high standards and to hear their actions and impact actively communicated. We must send a clear message that action on race equality is a core element of effective performance, it is expected and it is rewarded. We have identified some indicators which will tell us that we are delivering the change we need to see and we will work collaboratively with stakeholders to develop further transparent success measures which enable effective scrutiny of progress.
