The way we live our lives has changed in the space of six months and has understandably made many people anxious for the future. However, contrary to the slightly ominous tone, this post is about hope. Hope in the form of opportunity, to learn and adapt, thus strengthening the culture of inclusivity in the workplace. In light of recent events, I’ll be focusing on race and elements of the black experience and how certain narratives can contribute to our conscious and unconscious bias surrounding “black-ness.” It is my belief that to dismantle destructive attitudes that lead to discrimination, you must first look at the root cause. Through understanding and examination, we can start to develop behaviours that encourage equality and support growth.
