Right now many leaders are asking how they can turn their companies anti-racist—that is, supporting an anti-racist policy through their actions, or expressing an anti-racist idea. It’s an important question, and we should all embrace the intent behind the inquiry.
Instances of outright racism in mature corporations are, fortunately, relatively few compared to the largely accidental bias that influences so many hiring processes, promotion decisions, performance reviews, compensation decisions, succession planning discussions, feedback conversations, and every other aspect of the employee lifecycle.
So which problem should companies prioritize? Racism or bias?
