As the nation grapples with a growing awareness of longstanding racial inequities, employers are taking a stand to support racial justice initiatives. The Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate harm to Black, indigenous, and people of color has made it more urgent than ever to (a) ensure diverse and inclusive work environments, (b) identify and disrupt inherent and institutionalized biases preventing racial equity, and (c) constructively respond to activism affecting their businesses.
