Overcoming race and class: ethnic inequality in today's Britain

Differences in employment outcomes continue to affect Britain's ethnic minorities. For some ethnic minorities, significant improvements in education results have yet to translate into improvements in the workplace. The prime minister pledged to make tackling ethnic inequalities a priority for the government. But what are the key issues holding ethnic minorities back? How can we improve outcomes? How do race and class interrelate to hold people back at work? What is the best way of measuring success and failure, and of holding government and organisations to account?

IPPR is holding a lunchtime public event to discuss this issue.

Marvin Rees, the directly-elected Mayor of Bristol and long-term advocate for ethnic equality, will give a keynote address at a public event at IPPR's Central London office.

This will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. We will also hear from:

  • Baroness Ruby McGregor Smith, author of the government's McGregor-Smith Review on Race in the Workplace
  • Zamila Bunglawala, Deputy Director, Goverment Race Equality Unit
  • Phoebe Griffith, IPPR Associate Director for Migration, Integration and Communities (Chair).
