A major new research project has been commissioned to look at workplace inequality in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, the Philippines and Singapore. Called Race and Culture – the Conversation in Asia, it is being led by Community Business, the leading not-for-profit organisation committed to advancing responsible and inclusive business in Asia.
The research will be gathered using different methods including interviews and roundtables with experts, D&I and business leaders, employee surveys and focus groups and corporate case studies.
The research project is sponsored by Brown-Forman, Catalyst, Google, Johnson&Johnson, Morgan Stanley, Standard Chartered, AIG, Alliance Bernstein, Bank of America, BP, Corning, Credit Suisse, Deutche Bank, EY, Swire, LinkedIn, Linklaters, Moody’s, PayPal, Science Now, Shell, VF and Wells Fargo.
The research hopes to understand the context and key dimensions of race and culture in different markets in Asia, identify specific experiences of racial and cultural bias (positive and negative) in the workplace, share ways companies can address race and culture, drawing on direct experience (good and bad) of companies and insights from local experts and provide recommendations, resources and tools to help companies address race and culture in Asia.
