For companies and organizations wanting to get REAL about fighting racism, here’s a start:
- Gather the data you already have. It’s 99% likely your company has already surveyed/focus-grouped/committeed the HECK out of the topic for years; it’s time to turn that data into action
- Set goals – and make them explicit and measurable (recruitment, retention, leadership pipeline, feedback culture, procurement, partnerships, and more)
- Start measuring.
- Reward progress. And tie senior leadership’s compensation to progress against those metrics (Uber & others are doing this).
