21. Ignore, Copy or Destroy – Corporate America’s Predictable Instincts

When it comes to race and equity, Corporate America has engaged in a cycle of behavior that’s proven to be harmful to underrepresented employees. Are there two systems of justice?  Recent incidents including the death of George Floyd and the insurrection on the Capital further highlighted the racial disparities in America. In this first episode of Season II, Keith and Ricky discuss Corporate America’s response to recent events and how it translates to the workplace, an unlevel playing field, and breaking the cycle of inequality.
