Diversity does not equal inclusion

I have worked in an NHS trust pharmacy department where 40% of the workforce were black, yet racism was still rife in the department. They were frustrated at every turn, from being given heavier workloads than their white counterparts, lots more criticism compared to their white counterparts and many other forms of racial micro-aggressions, such as timesheets not being signed. Eventually people of black background in the pharmacy department kept leaving out of frustration, resulting in high turnover of black staff.
