APPG inquiry into ethnic minority female unemployment

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Race and Community has published its report on ethnic minority female unemployment following its inquiry into the issue. The inquiry took place between July and November 2012. The report, written on behalf of the APPG by Runnymede's Public Affairs Manager Vicki Butler, found that discrimination is present at every level of the recruitment process and calls for more action from government in order to decrease high unemployment levels of these groups.

The inquiry gathered evidence in parliament, through written submissions and by talking to women throughout the country. Evidence received is available below. In addition a short film was been made, which includes interviews on the issue with ethnic minority women around the country.
