How Should You Be Talking With Employees About Racism?
Entrepreneur | Jun 2020 It's easy to speculate about how you will lead and respond during a crisis. It's easy to talk about how you'll rise to the moment because a theoretical crisis—or a hypothetical one—is easier. But we are not in a theoretical time. This is not a moment of hypotheticals. The crisis is here, and your leadership moment is now. If you deem yourself a leader, you know this moment of global protests and the fight for equality doesn't exist in some vacuum outside your organization or outside your area of influence. You know you must lean in and own your power to lead now.

Talking about racial inequality at work is difficult—here are tips to do it thoughtfully CNBC | Jun 2020World-wide protests against racism and police
brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd, have shown the consequences
and high cost of a workplace culture that lacks accountability. Creating a
culture of accountability requires leadership that is ready to listen. Without
a “listen-up” culture that protects employees from retaliation, organizations
can’t expect their employees to speak-up.
