Lunch & Learn
Yo, is this Racist?
We all use history–both personal and country, to have a frame of reference for our interactions. Because we all live different experiences and have different identities, our frame of reference for acceptable and inclusive behavior is different. This can lead to disagreements, arguments, and even being the r-word, racist.
Intention is a Four-Letter Word
It’s been decades since the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, legally barring discriminatory practices based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, and other protected classes. While overtly practicing racism and sexism has been outlawed, those ways of thinking have not left the workplace. Instead, they’ve become more hidden an insidious in the form of unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, and gas-lighting.
Where are All the Black and Brown People?
You’ve tried it all, you’ve partnered with Black Girls Code, sponsored a Black Tech Mecca Event, and volunteered at Latinx Tech Pitch Night and your organization still doesn’t have a strong representation of marginalized design talent. There is usually a wave of applications after these events, but rarely does anyone make it past the first interview. Even if they do, the candidate doesn’t accept the job citing “cultural fit” reasons and you’re left mystified.
