S1E7 - Diversity 365 with Dr. Kimya Dennis (Part 2)

Focus on consciousness and cultural awareness over correctness. This means errors will be made in what we say and do -- but a sincere apology will be given and we will move forward. Sometimes, apologies will not lead to forgiveness or reconciliation right away or ever. This is OK. 

Look at your organization's policies and procedures to determine if they are causing harm and negative impact on marginalized groups. For example, family leave needs to expand to include modern definitions and structures. Survey your employees to determine their true needs and structure programming around this. Assess annually for progress. 

Ignore ignorance but address harm. Instead of labeling people and their opinions as racist. Focus on their actions and the impact it has on others.
