Brené Brown: The Illusion of Neutrality - AmericaHates.US

Brené Brown's statement on Palestine and Israel received swift criticism as lacking depth , and, in my opinion, that criticism is justified. Given her influence, it's imperative to demand more than surface-level allyship.

What Is Tone Policing, Why Is It Harmful, And What Can You Do About It?

We know that one in four Black and Hispanic employees report workplace discrimination, which impacts marginalized employees' mental health and comfort, and shapes their likelihood of future contribution. We also know that roughly half of LGBTQIA+ individuals report having experienced unfair treatment at work, and many "cover" to avoid further harassment or discrimination.

Why pronouncing my name right is more than common courtesy

Lawyer and social commentator Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu was recently celebrated - and criticized - for repeatedly telling journalist Dawn Neesom on-air to pronounce her name correctly. "This is terrible, especially from a presenter," Dr. Shola told Neesom. "Go back and start again. Phonetically." It's a reasonable expectation for a host to know the names of their guests.

The Business Case for DEI Reinforces Anti-Black Sentiment - Non Profit News | Nonprofit Quarterly

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion industry could not exist without the Civil Rights Movement and owes a debt to the labor and thought leadership of Black activists and freedom fighters. Yet rather than acknowledging and responding to its roots in organizing against White supremacy, DEI has developed into an industry that focuses on surface-level, individualistic engagement, and the bottom line-that is, on the ways DEI can boost profitability.

Equity principles are interconnected, intersectional, and anything but linear. They offer a compass for the ways in which we approach doing the work, building relationships, and honoring the people we are privileged to walk alongside. This work must be principled and rooted in the end goal of justice which holds to four pillars: access, equity, participation, human rights.
