Diversity is an issue CEOs must tackle directly and not just delegate to the HR director, said research and survey firm Green Park.

This was among the recommendations it made on the heels of a survey that said eight in 10 minority leaders believe there is institutional prejudice against minorities in the UK workforce, including the organisations they work for.

The survey, called Changing the Face of Tomorrow’s Leaders: Increasing Ethnic Minority Representation in Leadership, also said that while 18% of respondents have personally experienced discrimination in the past two years, 73% believe most workplace prejudice is unconscious.
