"Change the Race Ratio welcomes the efforts by any potential government to tackle and reduce the barriers faced by Black and ethnic minority employees.
Successful implementation to achieve this goal will require close consultation with business and we look forward to hearing details of how the Labour Party intends to match its ambitions with action.
We hope that any incoming government will take the opportunity to learn from the progress made by many of our members. Change the Race Ratio has been at the forefront of encouraging firms to collect and report their pay gap data since 2020; we ask signatories to publish their ethnicity pay gaps within two years of joining the campaign.
Our latest data revealed that 80% of our supporters were either already reporting or would report for the first time in 2023. We welcome all steps to encourage firms above 250 employees to collect and report data on ethnicity pay gaps, which we see as the first step in understanding where firms should focus their efforts to reduce inequities."
