ELA Annual Conference 2021 Season

The main purpose of ethnicity pay reporting is to shine a light on the recruitment, retention and progression of staff across all ethnicities to ensure that employer’s diversity policies relating to race equality and inclusion are working. Since the government closed its consultation we have also had the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities report which called for all employers who report ethnicity pay figures to publish a diagnosis and action plan alongside those figures.

This session will not only remind you of the government’s proposals as they last stood, but also take a look at what data insights your firm, and your clients, need to design to deliver a successful race strategy.  

We are delighted to have the following speakers join us for this session:

Ijeoma Omambala QC, who will remind us of the proposed legislative framework, as well as some of the issues with it, and give us her thoughts on the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities report as it relates to employment.

Jason Ku, CEO of Pirical, a pre-eminent data analytics company which enables companies to make better and fairer decisions about their people from data, giving them the insights they need to execute their people and diversity strategies.

Last year Pirical carried out an ethnic diversity benchmarking exercise across 30 firms. Jason explains the findings, and helps you to understand options for you and your clients to identify under-representation, root out biases, consider realistic goals and take action.  

Tiernan Brady from Clifford Chance, who worked with Pirical during the benchmarking exercise, explains the benefits of the work they have undertaken, from a practical and organisational perspective.
