Institutional racism, also known as systemic racism, is reflected in laws, regulations, and practice of a society or an organisation. Some cases are easy to identify and address, for example when people with identical jobs and experience levels but different national origins have different pay levels. Other cases are more complex and require a ‘whole system’ to work together. This is the case when an ad for a senior leadership position does not attract applications from a broad section of the community because people promoted through middle management do not come from a broad section of the community.
