This Month's Content Theme

February’s theme is “Race and Ethnicity in the Workplace.” It is not racist to see a person’s race or ethnicity—it is in fact a normal tendency. And yet many people are uncomfortable acknowledging race and ethnicity in the workplace, afraid that doing so will fuel interpersonal conflict and create divisions among social groups in the workplace. So how can we facilitate conversations around race and ethnicity in a way that will increase employees’ sense of uniqueness and belongingness while boosting innovation?
Interested in writing on this topic? Here are a couple questions to get you thinking:
  • Reader submitted: What methods have people used to engage colleagues in conversations about diversity? What was the response to these methods?
  • What topics are “off limits” in the workplace?
  • Who gets penalized or rewarded for talking about difficult issues at work, and by whom?
  • What if you tried to talk about diversity in the past and failed? How do you get past that?
  • What circumstances encourage employees to speak up or stay silent?
