THE Diversity Business Case:
On the heels of the terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, where members of the mob held the confederate flag, organizations have issued statements regarding their commitment to anti-racism, and to social and criminal justice. Until we face racism head-on, we can't begin to address important issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
THE Problem: Diversity case studY
January 6, 2021, terrorist riot defaces and damages U.S. Capitol Building during live Congressional Session - This year is starting off on a highly racially charged note! Police shootings continue to occur that disproportionately impact minority and vulnerable segments of our society and attacks on Asian citizens in the U.S. are at an alarmingly high rate. The time for active commitment to DEI is NOW!
