CoDE releases series of films on racism

19 June 2017

The Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), based in CMI has released a series of films addressing the issue of racism at work.

The films, devised by CMI’s Stephen Ashe follow the previous release of a short film highlighting some of the main findings of the 2015 Race at Work Survey, commissioned by Business in the Community.

They also come after the Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report prepared by Dr Stephen Ashe and Professor James Nazroo, a qualitative analysis of the 2015 Race at Work Survey.

In producing the report, Dr Ashe and Professor Nazroo conducted a qualitative analysis of more than 2,000 comments relating to racial harassment and bullying and more than 3,000 comments on senior leadership made by ethnic minority and White British employees aged over 16 years old, currently living in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Stephen has previously developed a series of graphic novels which focus on survey respondents’ experiences of racist bullying and harassment in the workplace.  The films and graphic novels highlight the nature, extent and human impact of racism and racial inequality at work.

Further information about Equality, Diversity and Racism in the Workplace report as well as the graphic novels and films can be found on the CoDE website.
