Racism has taken centerstage in the conversation for many organizations and companies lately. For years, racism was a taboo discussion, acted out as individual acts of meanness. To broach the conversation put people, especially white individuals, on edge. As awareness has grown, more and more organizations realize racism is a real issue and is affecting company growth, engagement, innovation, morale, recruitment, and results. Some claim the topic is a trend or fad, but experts warn that ignoring these critical topics will bring about short-term and long-term damage to the culture and organization. However, talking about the problem is only a part of the solution. We see the symptoms of the problem on a global scale. The next step is the most important one—undoing the damage by creating an anti-racist culture. 

The “Tipping Point” program works with participants to understand racism and where it comes from. The work session helps individuals see how it operates and why racism becomes a part of cultural norms. Finally, the program will explore ways to undue the systemic racism in the organization and build new structures and ways of thinking to experience an anti-racist environment.
