Truth and Transformation 2020, Beyond Diversity and Inclusion – Oct 2

Posted by Harvard Kennedy School on September 22, 2020

The Institutional Antiracism and Accountability (IARA) Project is an initiative in the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School directed by Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Professor of History, Race, and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and the Suzanne Young Murray Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies. The goal of this enterprise is to use research and policy to promote anti-racism as a core value and institutional norm. To this end, IARA proposes to further explore and examine how understanding and engaging with institutional history impacts organizations when forging a path forward for equity. While the field of racial equity and anti-racism is not new, it remains underdeveloped within the context of applied knowledge and pedagogy for organizational behavior and institutional change.

This online conference will explore the questions: Why Diversity and Inclusion practices fail to achieve racial equity in the workplace, and when they succeed, what works? How do companies and consultants effectively transform organizations? The goal of the 2020 conference is to better understand the limitations of the “business case” for Diversity and Inclusion and to explore implications for engaging in racial equity work with greater accountability and in partnership with other sectors.

Date and Time: Friday, October 2, 2020, 10:00 am to 5:30 pm
