There were no discussions between HMRC and the Government Race Disparity Audit Advisory Group in the last 12 months. Annually, HMRC publishes details of the diversity of its workforce, including ethnicity, in compliance with the public sector equality duties of the Equality Act 2010. The most recent report was published on GOV.UK on 31 January 2019 for the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
HMRC works closely with the Cabinet Office, particularly in tracking progress in increasing the proportion of BAME colleagues at Senior Civil Service level. HMRC’s wider work on race is well-established, with a staff Network, a bespoke talent programme for BAME staff, and an active Diversity Champion who is a member of the HMRC Executive Board.
