Systemic racism has festered for far too long. Chief Diversity Officers have argued for change for decades, and yet little overall progress has been made. The time for action is now.  

We are creating a peer-led challenge for companies to join us to eradicate systemic racism in our organizations within the next three years. How do we get there?

  1. It starts with a commitment at the top of our executive teams to lead and create the solutions – we believe this will not be successful as an outsourced or delegated initiative.
  2. At GFTW, we are accumulating a best practice methodology using a constant best-in-breed approach with concrete steps to support this bold challenge. The framework is designed as a starter kit for any executive team to consider the critical areas they need to address and a set of standards for implementation that can be modified and enhanced per each company’s situation.
  3. Finally, we teach executive teams to run through collaborative-problem solving exercises with their teams to deliver a comprehensive plan they can execute against and point to with pride.

We can create a movement where corporate leaders and their teams step up to decisive action that creates a more just society. We invite you to take the journey with us.
