In previous discussions, Robert Walters has stressed the critical role of movements like #BlackLivesMatter in elevating conversations about racial and ethnic disparities. As we introduce this report in a world adapting to the “new normal” and heightened awareness of evolving social justice concerns, we explore the roles of race and ethnicity in shaping ED&I dialogues within workplaces. Our survey findings from the past year highlight a pressing need for progress in key areas. Salary negotiations continue to reflect inequalities and equitable career development opportunities remain a core focus to knock-down barriers facing underrepresented groups. This report aims to provide valuable insights while also inspiring actions to advance ED&I efforts.
