So often, organizations believe fighting racism in the workplace begins and ends with increasing the representation of people of color. They believe that these new hires will not only have the abilities to do the job but will advance towards the path the leads to the company’s vision of racial equity.
Racial equality occurs when institutions give equal opportunity to people of all races. When those opportunities are out of balance the impending result is a discrimination lawsuit. The average cost of a discrimination lawsuit is $160,000.00 per case.
We offer a cost-effective program that results in protecting your business from the adverse impact of racial allegations.
Phase 1: Organizational Analysis
Phase 1 focuses on using qualitative and quantitative data collection methods to evaluate factors that contribute to the causes and effects associated with workplace racism. A completed analysis will provide the necessary information needed to begin the transformation as well as increase the credibility of the initiative.
Phase 2: Organizational Transformation
Phase 2 focuses on implementing a collaborative process, which ensures that the supervisor-employee team is joined together with the central focus of solving and overcoming challenges related to workplace racism. Supervisor and employees will learn how to overcome workplace and individual cultural values that often neutralize the development of positive racial relationships in the workplace.
Phase 3: Accountability
The purpose of the accountability system is to provide clear, actionable leadership coaching to the manager charged with leading the team of supervisor/employee leaders who will promote positive racial relationships in the workplace. The leadership coaching sessions are one-on-one sessions designed to discuss and develop any additional leadership characteristics and processes. The leadership coaching sessions are collaborative and provide both the coach and leader feedback opportunities to ensure the success of the project.
Phase 4: Project Evaluation
The project evaluation process uses systemic analysis to gather data and demonstrate the effectiveness of the project. The collected information will help to communicate the program’s effectiveness which is critical for public relations and staff morale.
