The Anti-Racism Task Force is asking local employers to save May 25!

An additional date, probably on a Saturday, is also being explored, so that employers have a choice of dates.
Why is this workshop important for your business?
- According to Census Bureau projections, people of color will be the majority population in the United States by 2043. Who will be your customers? Who will be your boss?
- Moving toward racial equity in the workplace is good for business. Racial inequities lead to increased employee stress and health problems. Racial equity reduces costs and increases productivity.
- Racial equity also leads to greater diversity among employees and a higher level of cultural competency. Cultural competency, in turn, leads to the development of new markets and increases in innovation.
