Leeds Anchor Institutions - Diversity Round Table
The Leeds Anchor Network are hosting a workshop to explore how some of Leeds' largest employers could collaborate to harmonise the publication of workforce diversity data to provide a unique insight into the extent to which Anchors' workforces reflect the communities we all serve. Leeds would be the first city in the UK to create a workforce diversity dashboard of this type and the insights it generates should also help us to collaborate on our recruitment and employment policies and practices to deal with some of the disparities which it will inevitably illustrate.
The workshop will take place on September 18 from 10:00-12:30 and our virtual host will be ODI Leeds, who will be a partner in the project. Joining details and a weblink will be sent out closer to the time. The schedule for the workshop will involve a combination of pre-recorded and live content with ample opportunity for discussion and Q&A. The main output for the session will be an agreed outline plan to progressively build the dashboard over the next 12 months, most likely starting with a subset of the Anchor network and moving over time to a point at which we can achieve fuller coverage.
