Building racially inclusive and equitable workplaces has become even more complex as we are now faced with the challenge of responding to the worsening economic and health disparities created by COVID-19 in many communities throughout the country. Employers can and should play an important role in inclusive recovery efforts, but must be equipped with data informed, market responsive solutions that center people of color. Tawanna Black, Founder and CEO of the Center for Economic Inclusion will facilitate this special Diversity Insights Digital Presentation sharing a framework for racially inclusive recovery for employers.

Learning Outcomes
  • Increase understanding between the regional and national racial and economic disparities and employer actions
  • Identify actions employers can take to strength racial inclusion in employment, procurement, and investments to close racial wage and wealth gaps
  • Identify opportunities for building racially inclusive, cross-sector, partnerships to drive meaningful, measurable results
