Racism doesn’t just hurt us on a personal level. It divides and alienates companies and their employees, employees and their clients, clients and brands. Hence, in this episode of our Justice, Equity, and Inclusion Series, author, NBC news analyst, and expert on racial healing Heather McGhee helps us to explore the self-destructive bargain of racism, its rising cost to all of us, and ways we can all unite to achieve transformative change within our workplaces so that we can better prosper together.
Following her remarks, McGhee was joined by Najuma Atkinson, senior vice president of global HR services in Dell Technologies’ CHRO, Javier Barrientos, head of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Takeda Pharmaceuticals, and China Widener, consulting business leader for Deloitte’s telecommunications, media and technology industry market, in an engaging panel discussion. During this discussion, the panel offered a mix of research and real-life examples to help us kick start a much needed cultural effort towards putting systematic repair into action with urgency, sensitivity, and transparency.
