Top 4 Racial Equity Actions Since George Floyd

We have observed the following actions from public and private organizations starting Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives since June 2020:

  1. Hired a Chief Equity/Diversity officer
  2. Created racially diverse affinity groups, task forces and committees
  3. Conducted antiracist/bias training, book readings and movie viewings for racial awareness education
  4. Issued public statements/resolutions, celebrated holidays and months for various racial/gender groups

However, we have also observed in what areas organizations have been significantly challenged as well:

  • Retention of Chief Equity/Diversity officers due to lack of budget and resources, and senior level leadership support for transformational change of policies and practices
  • Committee/taskforce conflicts, burnout, stagnation and frustration due to lack of structure, not having a shared language and purpose, and next steps strategies
  • Inability to evaluate formal policies and informal practices for “operationalizing” Racial, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Pushback and pressure from internal and external stakeholders for attempting to teach and/or train on concepts of critical race theory and antiracism

Discover how our evidenced-based Racial Equity Mindset framework is equipping organizations to circumvent these challenges and advance Racial Equity with a data and metric driven approach, that minimizes defensiveness and facilitates buy-in from internal and external stakeholders.
