Traditionally, workplace policies are made by individuals that don't reflect the diversity of the organization. For example, policies may not address racial bias, workplace equity, or the consequences of an employee demonstrating bias or discrimination in the workplace. Moreover, company cultures likely don't promote an anti-racism approach. In this Live episode, Dr. Giffen provides guidance and understanding of racism, implicit bias, microaggressions, and equity and what workplaces can do to help create a workplace culture that does not just 'talk' about diversity in the workplace, but actually takes ACTION.

For the next 20 minutes, I’m going to talk about the Racial Bias Seen in The Workplace from my perspective as an HR practitioner over the last 14 years…. and…. what I believe can be done today…. to not only create an organizational culture of inclusion.. but… a culture of accountability and one of ACTION towards diversity, not just lip service.



First and foremost, thank you to everyone who sent me their Tweets, DMs, email’s, and comments in preparation for Today’s show. Those questions and thoughts have been integrated into this episode. For those of you watching live, feel free to drop your questions in the feed ….and….. at the end of the show, I’ll do my best to screen through them and provide some thoughts……



In my 14-years as a human resource professional and educator, I have observed workplace policies made by individuals that did not reflect the diversity of the organization. For example, there were and continue to be policies don't address racial bias, workplace equity, or the consequences towards an employee demonstrating bias or discrimination in the workplace,



Moreover, company cultures did not promote an anti-racism approach. And although there are federal, state, and local laws that ban discriminatory practices, the reality in the workplace….is that it… occurs. It occurs through implicit bias, microaggressions and a lack of equity in workplaces since the inception of the United States of America’s declaration of independence.



So…what is Racism? Racism is a marriage of racist policies and racist ideas that produces and normalizes racial inequities. It can be seen in many forms. Some of the most subtle and common way’s are through implicit bias and microaggressions



In his book, “How to be an Anti-Racist,” author Ibram Kendi defines Racist and Anti-Racist. He defines Racist as:



RACIST: One who is supporting a racist policy through their actions or inaction or expressing a racist idea.



ANTIRACIST: One who is supporting an antiracist policy through their actions or expressing an antiracist idea.



Racism isn't so obvious at times. There are many forms in which racism occurs. And that's what I wish to focus on first. Moving forward, I want to focus on three areas: implicit bias, microaggressions, and equity.



Lets first understand the meaning of implicit bias and microaggressions. Then, I will briefly discuss the lack of equity in the workplace, followed by a few examples of what organizations can do today to make their w...
