The conversation around anti-Black racism in the corporate environment is nothing new, it has been going on for decades. But despite throwing millions of well-intentioned dollars at Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programs, racism in the workplace is happening at alarming rates.

A recent survey found that 54 per cent of Black Canadians have an ongoing experience with discrimination at work, meaning it occurs regularly. Another survey found 50% of Black Britons face racism in the workplace.

Black workers are 13 percent of the US workforce, but racial discrimination against this group accounts for 26 percent of racial discrimination claims.

This workshop is for corporate executives who want to go beyond public statements and root out racism from their hiring practices and workplace cultures. This workshop uncovers the hidden ways Anti-Black Racism shows up at work. Your Black employees have likely been silently carrying the weight of racism, and the recent Black Lives Matter movement has now pushed global leaders to really listen and to act. This workshop gives you the tools you need to make a start, including real workplace scenarios with guidelines for behavioural change.
