It has been obvious for many years, and it has crept through many workplaces in the United States, glaring but ignored. But you can’t overlook racial equity and inequalities any longer. Persons of color face discrimination and racism throughout the US, especially in the workplace.
Up until a few years back, race was considered to be too controversial or too political a topic to discuss within the corporate realm. But business owners, human resources, and employees cannot afford to be blind to the injustices of others. The playing field in education, society, and the workplace is not balanced for those of color, particularly Black and brown persons.
So, we need to have a conversation about race within the workplace. We need to take action so that everyone is treated equitably.
