Anti-Racism

Working in global teams, with global customers and clients can be exciting, empowering and an educational experience all of its own! Navigating differences in language, culture, beliefs are par for the course.

If you’re lucky (read: Aware), it may start to become more obvious to you how riddled with assumptions, beliefs and biases you are, based upon your reactions and responses to the people you come across as a remote worker. If it isn’t obvious, then this needs work.

Being an anti-racist remote worker is about being committed to understanding and eradicating the damaging biases we each have that perpetuate dangerous actions and reactions towards others, based upon their skin colour.

This isn’t just about becoming a better remote worker, it’s about becoming a better person. And understanding that this WILL empower you to navigate the world of work with more positive impact for yourself and for others, both online and off.
