BRC to promote diversity with new partnership

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is partnering with international law firm RPC to bolster its Diversity and Inclusion Charter.

RPC, a preeminent advisor to the UK's leading retailers and consumer brands, will serve as the exclusive resident expert in employment law and lead the discussion on such issues as recruitment, progression, and inclusivity.

Members of BRC's HR Community will benefit from a series of D&I roundtables covering data and reporting, employment practices, audit practices and promoting inclusive culture and values, as a way of helping retailers to address inequality and barriers to progression.

“We are delighted that RPC has joined us as we continue on a journey to make retail a Diversity and Inclusion leader,” said Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) “We are proud of our industry, but we recognise that we have a long way to go.

“RPC’s employment expertise will be a vital asset for our members, helping them to better their businesses and create equal opportunities for all. Together, we can make tangible change and I am excited to see what the future holds for retail with greater diversity and inclusion.”

Simon Edwards, retail partner at RPC, said: "We are delighted to deepen our existing relationship with the BRC and its members – the BRC is a powerful voice for our thriving retail sector and this partnership is a natural evolution of our commitment to the retail market."
