With the emergence of COVID-19, the most vulnerable members of society are more under-resourced and at risk of death than average. At the same time, many organizations just beginning equity work are questioning if it can/should continue, either because they no longer have revenue to pay for it, or because they “don’t have the bandwidth.” Using the framework Nicola Chin shared in a recent Woke@Work guest blog, panelists will discuss examples of how organizations are both centering race equity in immediate responses to COVID-19 and thinking strategically for the longer-term.
