Leaders highly committed to antiracist ideals can still be blind to the racial disparities that specific policies can cause. When we think of racism, we tend to think of racist ideas, which is where antibias training generally focuses. However, it is the structural policies we have in place that can lead to the most persistent racial disparities and can be much harder to identify. Assistant Dean Jeremy Petranka will discuss the difference between racist ideas and policies leading to increased racial disparity using historic economic examples. He will also discuss specific strategies to begin identifying and dismantling the policies within your organization that lead to racial disparities. Join the discussion via LinkedIn Live.
