Little Dot Studios signs up to the Race at Work CharterPress Release
Award-winning digital content agency and media network Little Dot Studios has signed up to the Race at Work Charter, an initiative designed to improve outcomes for Black, Asian and minority ethnic employees in the UK.
Launched in partnership with the UK government in 2018, the Race at Work Charter builds on the work of the 2017 McGregor-Smith Review, which found that people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds were still underemployed, under-promoted and under-represented at senior levels.
The Race at Work Charter is a public commitment to improving the experiences of Black, Asian and minority ethnic employees in the workplace. It sets out seven actions for signatories to take:
• Appointing an Executive Sponsor for race
• Capturing data and publicising progress
• Ensuring zero tolerance of harassment and bullying
• Making equality in the workplace the responsibility of all leaders and managers
• Taking action that supports ethnic minority career progression
• Support race inclusion allies in the workplace
• Include Black, Asian, Mixed Race and other ethnically diverse-led enterprise owners in supply chains.
Dan Jones, CEO, Little Dot Studios said: “Increasing diversity, equity and inclusion at Little DotStudios is central to our business strategy, so we are pleased to be joining other companies in signing up to the Race at Work Charter. Widening the talent pool we draw from, and giving everyone, no matter what their background, the chance to thrive and succeed underpins our creativity and success.”
Sandra Kerr CBE, race equality director at Business in the Community, added: “We would like to thank Little Dot Studios for setting out their commitment to being an inclusive and responsible employer. By signing up to the charter, they are showing that they aspire to have one of the most inclusive workplaces in the country. Together we can break down barriers in the workplace, raise the aspirations and achievements of talented individuals and deliver an enormous boost to the long-term economic position of the UK.”
