Announcing a consultation on mandatory pay reporting, Theresa May said: "Every employee deserves the opportunity to progress and fulfil their potential in their chosen field, regardless of which background they are from, but too often ethnic minority employees feel they're hitting a brick wall when it comes to career progression."The consultation will run until January to allow businesses to share views on what information should be published.Mys May also unveiled a Race at Work Charter aimed at increasing recruitment and career progression of ethnic minority employees.
