PTI Joins the Business In the Community Race at Work Charter
Race equality in the UK could bolster the economy by £24 billion per year, however many ethnic minorities still face significant disparities in employment and progression. As part of our commitment to tackling this issue, we are pleased to announce that Prince’s Trust International is now a signatory of the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter.
The Charter is composed of five objectives for leaders and organisations across all sectors. These include:
- To encourage leadership, allyship and connections
- To encourage business to take strategic action on leadership
- To promote mentoring and sponsorship
- To champion progression for ethnic minority people
- Race and the Responsible Digital Business Agenda

Signing up to this important initiative means taking practical steps to ensure Prince’s Trust International workplaces are free from the barriers that ethnic minority people face in recruitment and progression. It is also a commitment to ensuring that we are both representative of British society today and that we meet our Pledge of representing, at all levels, the communities we work with.
As part of our wider commitment to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, we are also now a signatory to the British Government’s Disability Confident Employer Scheme which encourages employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people.
