    Great Awakening/Racial Reckoning

    Episode Title: Great Awakening/ Racial Reckoning
    Episode Link: https://youtu.be/N79nfxbomhU
    Hello and welcome to A Black Executive Perspective ! Today, we're discussing .🎙️ The Great Awakening/Racial Reckoning in corporate America where organizations made public statements recognizing the existence of systemic racism, made to the community to fight against Anti-Black racism.
    ▶︎ In This Episode The conversation explores the need for systemic change in corporate America to address racial inequities. It highlights the limitations of symbolic gestures and awareness campaigns, emphasizing the importance of high-impact work. The guest, Andrew Beeman, shares his personal journey and recommendations for dismantling and changing the system. He discusses his experiences in hospitality, consultancy, and the banking industry, and how he got involved in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. The conversation also touches on the myths surrounding DEI efforts, such as celebrations and mandatory diversity training. The conversation explores the importance of listening to the community and employees, rather than relying solely on training, to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in organizations. It emphasizes the need for accountability and systemic change, rather than placing the burden on individual employees. The Starbucks incident is used as an example of the importance of addressing the root causes of problems, rather than simply firing employees. The conversation also highlights successful DEI initiatives at companies like JP Morgan Chase and Vanguard Group. The key takeaway is the importance of conducting audits to identify disparities and implementing meaningful, long-term change.

Powerful Conversations on Race

Tony draws on his personal experience as an executive and on current research to discuss timely questions regarding race and business in an open thoughtful manner. U.S. and global companies serious about a commitment to ethical success need occupants of the C suites and board members to honestly engage with the issues Tony raises regarding the ongoing history of explicit and implicit racism.
