Commenting on the tools, Claire Clifford, director of people, skills and culture at EIC said: “We’re delighted to share a series of tools and inspirational stories to support your business to have these – at first glance – difficult conversations. We hope they will help your company to take positive steps towards better supporting Ethnic Minorities in your workplace.”
