The Racial Revolution of 2020 pushed anti-racism to the forefront of the global conversation. For the first time in history, many companies have had to take an honest look at how little progress has been made in regard to racial equity in the workplace. The diversity, equity, and inclusion industry has been around for decades and strides have been made to create a more diverse workforce, however, more must be done to ensure that people of various backgrounds feel respected, valued, and included.
The Pink Elephant is a practical guide to creating a more racially equitable workplace for all employees. This book explores tools for effective racial dialogue, how to unpack and understand our privilege, best practices for anti-racism workshops, and strategies to break the habit of systemic racism in the workplace. For anyone looking to transfer the lessons learned in the summer of 2020 into corporate America, this is the book for you.
