Becoming an anti-racist organization


Geese in formation: a dance of leading and following in turnFor companies and organizations wanting to get REAL about fighting racism, here’s a start:

  1. 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
  2. Set goals – and make them explicit and measurable (recruitment, retention, leadership pipeline, feedback culture, procurement, partnerships, and more)
  3. Start measuring.
  4. Reward progress. And tie senior leadership’s compensation to progress against those metrics (Uber & others are doing this).
