Toward a Racially Just Workplace: Three Zones of Action for Advancing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice

What can we learn from experiences of race, work, and leadership, and how can we apply these insights toward strengthening our organizations’ strategic and mission alignment? How does inattention to race, work, and leadership undermine organizational performance and community vitality? Drawing from a compilation of research studies, Dr. Laura Morgan Roberts highlights key challenges that racially diverse professionals face in gaining access, authenticity, advancement, authority, and accountability for attracting, developing, and retaining diverse talent in just and equitable ways. She’ll share key steps that engage three zones of action — heads, hearts, and hands — to increase organizational awareness of racial inequalities and why they matter at work, and to promote racial justice at work.
