Well-being@work: Race and mental health in the workplace Brussels, 7th December 2018


The 10th Equal@work seminar will explore the emerging topic of wellbeing, race and mental health in the workplace. Forward-thinking employers are increasingly recognising the importance of health and wellbeing for a productive workplace, however few have considered the issues of race and mental health. How do barriers facing people of colour in the workplace affect mental health and wellbeing?

Available data shows that racial minorities are more likely to suffer from common mental health issues. In addition, the effect racial discrimination and other forms of mistreatment has been completely under-explored. From the effect of discrimination and harassment, inequality in workplace hierarchies, and the pressure to conform discriminatory workplace standards, a number of issues are there to be unpacked. Any attempt toward full equality and inclusion for people of colour requires a real consideration of the barriers facing them.

ENAR will bring together a range of different actors - private companies, public administrations, trade unions, NGOs, employees - to explore this innovative topic.
