The timing could not be perfect for this week’s episode of DEI After 5.
Over the last few weeks, I have noticed that companies are still clueless when addressing traumatic and sensitive issues that impact marginalized communities, particularly with the shootings in California and New York. Yet, some of these same companies have jumped on the bandwagon of “all holidays can be profitable” without a clue about the negative impacts their decisions may create.
This happens when organizations center whiteness in their DEI efforts and marginalized voices/experiences are pushed to the margins. See how decolonizing diversity, equity, and inclusion can help move your organization forward.
A previous DEI After 5 guest, Brittany Harris puts it this way (Check out my chat with Brittany here) –
When I think of decolonizing or reimagining diversity, equity, and inclusion work, I think about centering justice, humanity, and oppression over ‘business case,’ innovation and profit.
Aparna and I unpack this notion a bit further in our conversation where we discuss what this decolonization of DEI looks like in corporate America, the importance of accountability and allyship, and the exploitation of employee resource groups.
