IRC UK is committed to an environment where people succeed and are treated fairly whatever their ethnicity. To this end, and in line with our UK Gender, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) strategy and the global IRC GEDI vision, we collect data and publish reports on the ethnicity pay gap to guide our actions for improving diversity, equality and inclusion in our workplace.

There is currently no legal requirement for UK businesses to disclose their ethnicity pay data but in the absence of legislation, some organisations have taken the lead to report their ethnicity pay data voluntarily and the number of employers publishing this increased from 11% in 2018 to 19% in 2021.
