ANTI-RACISM  AND EQUALITY

We must take meaningful action against racism in the workplace. Business leaders, especially white leaders, may now be finding ourselves seeking out a crash course in anti-racism—the active dismantling of structures and ingrained biases that
uphold racial inequalities. It's likely to get uncomfortable for you and your colleagues, and EAP is here to support and learn with you.


What does workplace-based education and true growth look like? These resources are
meant to help you start moving beyond a simple company message and begin creating profound, lasting change in your organization.

 

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed or not know how to take the next step; contact us today for a management consultation on how to make all of your employees feel safe and empowered.
