The inclusive employers toolkit aims to help companies increase recruitment, retention and progression of young Black men within their workforces. The toolkit is for use by senior leaders and recruitment staff within companies in the construction and digital technology industries, and their suppliers. It will equip employers with practical tools and examples of good practice from within these sectors.
Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London said at the launch:
“We are living through a defining moment…it is incumbent on all of us, politicians and businesses, the public and the private sector to rise to this moment. This is how we can play our part in reshaping society and building the fairer, more just, more equal future we all want to see.”
This toolkit focuses on a specific group of people in London who are under-represented within the construction and digital sector workforces: young Black men. However, many of the actions in this toolkit can be adapted and applied to other under-represented groups and to other industries. Where possible it illustrates actions in practice using case studies focused on young Black men. However, due to the innovative nature of work supporting young Black men directly, high-quality examples of existing good practice were not available across the board.
