In 2020, we published the full ‘Accent Bias in Britain’ project report. The report details the rationale for our study, our methodology, and the main findings of our analyses. You can access the report in .pdf format by clicking here.

Diversity training

We have worked with the Social Mobility Commission to embed considerations of accent-based discrimination in their Financial and Professional Services Toolkit and are listed in the Social Mobility Commission’s Organisation Directory
 
Accent Bias Britain has added coverage of accent as a route for discrimination against social class and ethnicity to the Equality Act Review. Details can be found in the Equality Act 10 Years On Report.
 
The team have arranged presentations on accent-based discrimination for the social mobility networks of the Department for Education, Department for Culture, Media, and Sport, Department of Health and Social Care,  and Treasury Legal Advisers. We have also engaged with EDI teams in the corporate sector and the higher education sector.
 
We are available for consultation on implementing simple and effective tools for raising awareness of accent as a basis for bias in professional sectors.
