#1. Four ways you can tackle racial discrimination in your workplace
This year has proven to be a historic year. First, COVID-19 has transformed our lives and economies. And then, more recently, following the tragic death of George Floyd, many have begun to ask how organizations can do more to tackle discrimination and to promote equality. This Forbes article outlines four ways in which companies can address racial discrimination in the workplace:
The first thing is to keep the conversation going. It is to acknowledge the injustices and to express your commitment to doing better.
This has to be followed by embedding anti-racism into the organization’s values, training, and action. This will inevitably lead to building a stronger, healthier, and better workplace for all.

Linked to this, businesses should cultivate diversity and tackle unconscious bias. For instance, the hiring process is just one of the many ways employers can combat racial discrimination.
