If topics that intersect DEI like critical race theory are perceived as too controversial to discuss in an academic setting, how can they ever be addressed in a professional setting?

In this episode of Race at Work, UCLA Law professor Dr. Laura Gómez stresses the fact that although there have been civil rights movements in the past and laws designed to increase equality, inequality still persists in American society.

If company leaders aim to address these complex topics, it is imperative to understand the historical context in which they are rooted. That can only be done by educating ourselves on topics like critical race theory, an academic movement that has existed well before the 21st century.

ideascape provides a thought partnership for executives and DEI leaders to strategize how to appropriately discuss and examine complex topics that many people are too wary to even mention at the office.

We all know that inequality is still firmly rooted in our society. Leaders must now decide how to best address these topics in the workplace. Reach out to Jonathan Dyke and Deon Gaines to begin making the first steps.
