Diversity and inclusion
Businesses that actively confront racism with practical measures usually see an improvement in employee job satisfaction, loyalty, creativity and value.

Organisations including the NHS, Linklaters, PwC and Zurich have committed to a programme to collectively hire 10,000 black interns, in a bid to improve ethnic diversity in business and to boost job prospects for young black people.
Companies should have at least one BAME board member and set 'clear and stretching' targets for increasing racial and ethnic diversity in senior leadership, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and a group of major organisations have insisted.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality charity Stonewall has announced its Top Global Employers for 2020.
