Here are some key takeaways from this episode
Racism is systematic; it’s more than Good people vs. Bad people
“Racism permeates organisations and the McPherson Report’s investigation found that the Metropolitan Police in London was institutionally racist. But organisations continue to fail people because of their racial identity and that needs to change for us to have an inclusive workplace”
Racism likes to hide, this is why Intersectionality is so important.
“Recognising how race manifests itself when we consider gender, class, and other forms of social identity makes it more difficult to hide”
We should be talking about Race and not ignoring it
“yes it can be emotive, yes it’s easily misrepresented, but the colour blind approach of I don’t see race ignores the reality that organisations evidently do see race. This affects the life chances of people in our society”
