What are the financial outcomes for companies that resist moving towards diversity? What actions are being taken to hold companies accountable? Is it enough for companies to only make Black Lives Matter statements publicly, and what would increase their accountability? Why might some Black professionals resist movements meant to increase opportunities for Black people?
In this series on healthcare and social disparities, Dr. Jill Wener, a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist, meditation expert, and tapping practitioner, interviews experts in multiple fields relating to social justice and anti-racism. In this episode, Jill interviews George Robinson, the Director of Supplier Diversity & Inclusion for University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. George explains his definition of anti-racism and how that differs from the “all lives matter” response to the Black Lives Matter movement. He notes the importance of data and statistics when it comes to supporting diversity in the corporate setting. George discusses what privilege is and why the move towards diversity isn’t against white people; it benefits everyone.
George Robinson joined UPMC in April 2018 to enhance strategic planning and execution in the UPMC Supplier Diversity Program. His latest accomplishment includes contributing authorship to Engineering Your Career, A Complete Guide to Landing a Job in Engineering by Thomas A. Anderson, P.E.
