In October 2018, the CIPD signed the Race at Work Charter. The Charter sets out five actions to improve the representation of ethnic minority employees at all levels in organisations. One of these actions is capturing ethnicity data and reporting progress. 

We first published our ethnicity pay data in our 2018–19 annual report and have called on government to make this a mandatory requirement alongside gender pay gap reporting. To support our call, and lead by example, we produced our first dedicated ethnicity pay report in 2020 and are doing the same this year.
