A lack of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) in UK workplaces?

During our research for our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion course we noticed some of the interesting statistics surrounding the lack of equality, diversity and inclusion in UK workplaces. 

Some of the statistics that we saw in recent years include:

"The employment rate for ethnic minorities is only 62.8% compared with an employment rate for White workers of 75.6%."

"Almost 1 in 5 LGBT staff (18%) have been the target of negative comment or conduct from work colleagues in the last year because they're LGBT."

"In 2021, there are only 6 female CEOs of FTSE 100 companies."

"79% of HR directors & managers said that unconscious bias is widespread in areas such as recruitment & promotion."
