Fighting Covert Racism In The Workplace
Join NCRC’s National Training Academy on May 4, 2022, 2 – 3:30 pm ET for a webinar on how to have inclusive cultures in the workplace.
Most of us recognize and stand solidly against overt expressions of racism such as racial slurs, violence, and practices of blatant racial segregation and discrimination.

Covert racism includes but is not limited to implicit biases, microaggressions, and racially coded language. Often, people who say and do these things are unaware of the racism that informs them.
