There is a huge pool of talent among young people from Black, Asian and Mixed Heritage backgrounds and we work to promote this group to employers. For ARE, having a more equal society means young people will believe that their race, ethnicity or faith won’t limit what they can achieve in life – and employment is central to this.
In working with young people to develop their employability and enhance their opportunities to find the meaningful career they aspire to, ARE has published information to help employers.
Commissioned by the Greater London Authority, ARE, through the Moving On Up programme, has developed the Inclusive Employers Toolkit, offering free advice to employers in the capital.
Moving On Up is ARE’s groundbreaking employment initiative for young Black men aged 16 – 24.
The Inclusive Employers Toolkit aims to help companies adopt commitment from the top levels of leadership to increase recruitment, retention and progression of young Black men within their workforces. It 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.
