At Insignia Global Partners, we understand the importance of creating an inclusive and equitable work environment for all healthcare staff. It is essential to tackle racial discrimination in the workplace, and healthcare organisations have a critical role to play in achieving this goal.

We recommend the following actions to address racial discrimination in healthcare workplaces:

Educate your workforce

Firstly, we urge healthcare employers to raise awareness by educating staff members about the importance of respecting all individuals, regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion. You can offer regular training sessions to ensure that everyone has a clear understanding of what constitutes racist or abusive behaviour.

Recruit from diverse background

Secondly, we encourage healthcare employers to recruit staff from diverse backgrounds, languages, and cultures to create a culture of sensitivity, respect, and tolerance.

Establish a zero-tolerance culture

Thirdly, we strongly recommend that healthcare employers establish a zero-tolerance policy towards racist or abusive behaviour in the workplace. We can help develop and enforce workplace policies that clearly define and prohibit such behaviour, with the assurance that there will be strict legal ramifications.

Embed a confidential reporting process

Fourthly, you can offer confidential reporting mechanisms to allow staff to report any cases of racist or abusive behaviour in a safe and discreet environment. We encourage staff to report incidents without fear of retaliation.

Hold colleagues accountable

Fifthly, we recommend that healthcare employers hold staff accountable for their actions. We support disciplinary measures and termination, if necessary, for any staff members found guilty of racist or abusive behaviour.

Engage and listen

Lastly, we advocate for healthcare employers to engage with and listen to minority communities to understand their experiences, expectations, and concerns regarding healthcare. We can help healthcare providers develop culturally sensitive approaches that meet the needs of diverse healthcare worker populations.


At Insignia Global Partners, we are ready to offer our support to healthcare organisations in implementing these measures to tackle racial discrimination in the workplace. Together, we can create a safe environment that promotes respect, dignity, and equality for all healthcare staff, irrespective of race or ethnicity.


We have created a free poster for healthcare organisations that promotes the elimination of racial discrimination in the workplace, which we are very happy to send to healthcare employers.
