Inclusive Employers Toolkit

The Greater London Authority's 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, the Mayor of London, writes in the introduction:

One in five of London’s young men is Black. This is a creative and skilled talent pool that is vital to our city’s success. Regrettably though, young Black men experience an unemployment rate that is one of the highest in our city (33 per cent) and more than twice that of their White counterparts ... That is why City Hall has developed this good practice toolkit to help you, as an organisation, achieve farreaching cultural change. This will not only benefit young Black men, but many others facing structural barriers and discrimination. 

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.
