The time to end systematic racism within your organization is now! Employers must transform workplace cultures into environments that are inclusive and equitable for all employees. At SHIFT, we speak regularly with HR and DEI thought-leaders and professionals who are tackling systematic racism within their organizations. Many advocate instilling new processes and ways of thinking to make a lasting impact.
SHIFT's webinar focused on the topic of Creating an Anti-Racist Culture during which we partnered with two thought-leaders in this space that are leading this charge within their organizations, Mary Mbiya from Flagstar Bank and Robert Harris from BancorpSouth Bank.
Our Co-Founder and President, Katherin Nukk-Freeman, Esq., along with our two guest-panelists Mary Mbiya, Vice President, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Director at Flagstar Bank, and Robert Harris, Senior Vice President, Director of Diversity & Inclusion and Director of Community Lending at BancorpSouth Bank, discussed:
How to identify your organization’s “racial climate” and where there is room for growth
The infrastructure that you can put in place to eradicate systemic racism
Examples of “best practices” employers are using to address and build an Anti-Racist Culture
Ways to fortify a workplace culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion
The types of organization-wide learning and development that can impact positive change
