Diversity data diagnostics - What’s it got to do with you?

Who should attend

This Diversity data diagnostics course is aimed at HR and D&I specialists, in-house lawyers, and compliance professionals.

Synopsis

If a higher percentage of women leave your organisation than men, you need to know about it so that you can find out why. An employer cannot say it has a representative workforce unless it collects diversity data about the people who work for it. A difficulty is that staff often think they have already provided this information.

Sensitivity about data privacy has never been higher. Unless staff understand why

their employer is asking for their personal data, many will ‘prefer not to say’. This

briefing covers how to ask for diversity data, the data categories (including disability

and socio-economic background) you may wish to collect and why. We cover the

importance and complexity of ‘intersectionality’, plans for ethnicity pay reporting

and the wider benefits of knowing who is coming into your organisation, who is

progressing and who is leaving.
