Hello Everyone,
I will be taking the lead on the Equity PD on Wednesday. Prior to the PD, please read the attached article below:
https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/08/cognitive-bias-unconscious-racism-moral-licensing/

3 cognitive biases perpetuating systemic racism at work | World Economic Forum
In the wake of global protests against racial injustice, companies and individuals have been doing more to tackle racial inequality. But positive change can only be achieved through a focus on changing systems not individuals, writes Adwoa Bagalini, the World Economic Forum’s Engagement, Diversity and Inclusion Lead.
