PIHRA is excited to announce a collaboration between PIHRA’s #RealHR and PIHRA Pasadena’s HR Round-Table and Book-Club in leading a provocative discussion about racism and anti-racism in the workplace. During this interactive event, high-level panelists will discuss Ibram X. Kendi’s best-selling book, How to Be an Anti-Racist and the types of organization wide changes that HR professionals can implement to move workplace culture to be more inclusive, equitable and diverse.

Please join us to ask questions and contribute your insights and thoughts. Bring a friend so we can partner to build a safer and more equitable workplace for all. 

The objectives of this virtual, interactive panel program include:

  • Understand the origin, impact and teachable moments of racism and related factors.
  • Identify what racism and anti-racism look like in society, in the workplace and in ourselves.
  • Discuss the corporate changes and strategies related to behaviors, systems, training, representation and policies that are necessary to implement to transform organizational culture toward being an anti-racist, inclusive and equitable entity.
