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.

“Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward.”
