During this time of multiple national crises, corporations continue to step up more than ever to take the lead in promoting effective diversity, equity and inclusion.
I really do have a fear that the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts across many organizations will be set back several years during this time of the coronavirus pandemic. If DEI is truly a strategic initiative for organizations to thrive and grow into the future, why should things stop now?
In my recent blog on my website, “Why So Much Hate,” I wrote about the hateful comments I receive on social media after blogging about topics such as Islamophobia, LGBTQ equality and Racism. In the LGBTQ area, I am shocked about some of the people commenting about LGBTQ people clamoring for “special rights.”
Consider supporting a project coordinated by Pride in the Triangle, a collaboration of Triangle, N.C.-area LGBTQ+ employees and allies from various corporations coming together to share best practices, work together on LGBTQ+ issues in our corporations and in North Carolina and network with other out employees and allies.
