Actionable Steps for Creating Space for Race-Based Discussions in the Workplace

Companies’ executive leadership have likely already issued public statements about renewed commitment to racial justice. Maybe they have also pledged financial support to related causes. Those actions are great, but such one-time measures will not lead to sustainable and tangible racial equality in the workplace. 

What can you do? We have a “yes, and” answer to that question. Yes, do all the impactful things suggested on the myriad lists circulating right now: educate yourself; reflect on your own conscious and unconscious biases; invite different points of view and experiences into decision-making; support minority-owned businesses; donate money and/or time to advocacy organizations; be an active sponsor for the careers of black colleagues; and many other ideas.
