Diversity, equity, & inclusion (DEI)
Hone is committed to developing diversity, equity, and inclusion programming, and sharing this work widely so that all people leaders have access to high-quality DEI training. In addition to this guide, please check out our blog, webinars, and our YouTube channel.
What is anti-racism?
DEI commitments don’t mean much if the company doesn’t have the results that show the change they are enacting in their own workplace and larger community.
An “anti-racist” company, by comparison, goes a step further to dismantle the inequities within workplaces by truly prioritizing anti-racist policies and behaviors within team and organizational structure.
