The Government is committed to a cohesive society where everyone   can enter and progress at work and achieve on merit, whatever their background.

The Government consulted on how best to implement mandatory ethnicity pay reporting. We received over 300 detailed responses and will set out next steps in due course.

The Government has also launched the Race at Work Charter which commits signatories to effective practices that support fairness at work. Over 170 employers have signed up to date.
