Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Rich list of examples of things that don’t fit into the traditional definition of racism but may still contribute to it.

Many organizations struggle to identify concrete ways to address diversity, equity, and inclusion. This short succinct article provides ideas on how organizations can move their equity work forward in tactical ways that include compliance, ERGs, and leadership development.

Being in crisis mode can cause even the most intentional and well—meaning leaders to fall into patterns of bias and exclusion. Research shows that when we’re stressed, we often default to heuristics and gut instincts, rather than making deliberate and goaI-oriented decisions.

Racial equity tools are designed to integrate explicit consideration of racial equity in decisions, including policies, practices, programs, and budgets. It is both a product and a process. Use of a racial equity tool can help to develop strategies and actions that reduce racial inequities and improve success for all groups.

Schools, like all organizations, face a nearly insurmountable hurdle when addressing racial inequities―the inability to talk candidly about race. In this timely update, author Glenn Singleton enables you to break the silence and open an authentic dialogue that forges a path to progress for racial equity. The third edition offers new coverage of the structural inequities in schools and society that have been exposed by the pandemic as well as heightened public awareness of racial injustice.

Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this seIf-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.

A powerful and practical guide to help you navigate racism, challenge privilege, manage stress and trauma, and begin to heal.
