Companies that might have previously been silent on Black Lives Matter, suddenly and unequivocally, are now rallying around the cause of racial justice. Clearly, hashtags and donations are not enough to address the systemic inequities within their own industries and organizations. While speaking up is a critical first step, there is so much more that must be done.
That's why we held a Q&A style webinar, in which our Co-Founder and President, Katherin Nukk-Freeman, Esq., and Michele Brown, President of IntuAction Coaching discussed:
The difference between individual prejudice and systemic racism
Infrastructure organizations can put in place to eradicate any systemic racism
How to address the concepts and dialogue related to Black Lives Matter and White Privilege
How to identify your workplaces “racial climate” and where there is room for growth
Ways to take action -- both internally within your organization and externally by your employees in their own communities
Examples of “best practices” employers are using to address these issues
Ways to fortify a workplace culture of diversity, equity and inclusion
The importance of listening to your employees, clients and stakeholders
What types of organization-wide learning and development can impact positive change
Creating an anti-racist environment is vital in order for organizations to succeed. Employers need to ensure what they are saying matches what they are doing – they need to walk the talk!
