Allyship and Intersectionality: Digging Deeper into Race, Ethnicity and Culture
Racial diversity in the workplace – from recruiting to hiring to promoting people of color – continues to move at an unimpressive pace. And a primary reason for this lack of progress is lack of allyship. In fact, recent Catalyst data reports 68% of people of color are on guard to protect against bias – racial microaggressions and “everyday” or “passive” racism – and unfair treatment within their work teams, with most reporting they are on guard specifically because of their race or ethnicity.
What will it really take to change the picture? Learn how we can all make an impact as Diya tackles racial inequity in the workplace, address the ethnic and cultural biases at play, and provide us all with practical tips to make a difference in the workplace, one ally at a time.
