MI5 named as one of the UK's Best Employers for Race

MI5 has again been recognised for its leadership on race equality and workplace inclusion by being named in Business in the Community's Best Employers for Race.

To be considered, employers must demonstrate that they are prioritising race equality, creating inclusive workplace cultures and taking action on BAME leadership and recruitment.

Now in its second year, the list of employers is unranked and published in alphabetical order. MI5 was also included in the 2017 list.

Sandra Kerr OBE, race equality director at Business in the Community, said:

"Congratulations to MI5 on being named in the Best Employers for Race 2018 listing. They have demonstrated their leadership and commitment to creating a fair, diverse and inclusive workplace that works for all employees, including those from BAME backgrounds. In a rapidly changing global business environment, it's vital that organisations make the most of all the diverse talent available to them, and MI5 is doing just that. I hope more employers will learn from their example, seize the moment to act on workplace race equality and follow the example set out by the leading employers in this listing by signing up for Race at the Work Charter launched earlier this month."

The full list of Best Employers for Race and Equality Awards Winners and Highly Commended organisations are available via the Business in the Community Awards.
