CoDE releases short film highlighting findings of 2015 Race at Work Survey

24 February 2017

The Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), based at CMIST, has released a short film to highlight some of the main findings of the 2015 Race at Work Survey, commissioned by Business in the Community.

The film follows the Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report prepared by Dr Stephen Ashe and Professor James Nazroo, a qualitative analysis of the 2015 Race at Work Survey. 

In producing the report, Dr Ashe and Professor Nazroo conducted a qualitative analysis of more than 2,000 comments relating to racial harassment and bullying and more than 3,000 comments on senior leadership made by ethnic minority and White British employees aged over 16 years old, currently living in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

On 31 January 2017, Dr Ashe and Professor Nazroo attended a meeting at the House of Commons hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Race and Community (APPG) to discuss the  recommendations for government set out in the Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report. Several newspapers reported on both the launch of the report and the APPG meeting, while Dr Ashe and Sandra Kerr OBE from Business in the Community gave a series of interviews for BBC Radio. 

An ESRC Impact Accelerator Account grant has enabled the CoDE team to produce and release a film based on the recommendations for government. This the first in a series of planned short films and graphic novels which will focus on survey respondents’ experiences of racist bullying and harassment in the workplace.  The films and novels will highlight the nature, extent and human impact of racism and racial inequality at work whilst considering effective strategies for addressing the issues. 

Further information about the Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report and short film to accompany the report can be found at the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity website.
