[ZERO TOLERANCE] New guide aims to combat racism in the workplace

McLean & Company has published a new guide to help organizations combat racism by actively identifying and removing barriers faced by racialized persons. The research blueprint aims to enable HR leaders and people managers to be more conscious of the lived experiences of all team members.

The guide shows that these barriers typically fall under workplace, social, and health settings. The research associated with the guide indicates that racialized employees often endure an emotional tax, with negative impacts on wellbeing, health, and the ability to thrive at work.

Listening to lived experiences of employees allows organizations to better understand how to support team members and identify inequalities and barriers they may face, according to McLean. The guide includes an anti-racism storyboard; a diversity, equity and inclusion primer; and a catalog of biases and heuristics.
