Introducing a new blog: Race in the Workplace

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

I’m excited to announce the launch of a brand-new New Demographic blog, Race in the Workplace. Please head on over to check it out!

It will explore how race and racism influence our working lives. You’ll find a mix of practical advice, personal stories, interviews with experts and authors, recommended resources, and much, much more. But perhaps most importantly, you’ll find a space in which you can discuss these issues with like-minded people.

If you’re anything like me, you’re tired of the robotic diversity-speak and uncritical celebrations of multiculturalism that dominate our workplaces. That’s why I started New Demographic, an anti-racism training company that goes beyond diversity buzzwords to tackle the real issues behind race and racism.

I hope you’ll enjoy the blog and that you’ll participate in the conversations that will take place there. Let me know what you think! :)

One thought on “Introducing a new blog: Race in the Workplace”

  1. I was thinking about ideas for your podcast. I remember you once talked about humor and race, but maybe to take a different perspective and explore how comedians have introduced race and broken down stereotypes in their work especially that of The Watch List which is on Comedy Central online and on tv at 2 am I think? http://www.comedycentral.com/shows/watch_list/index.jhtml

    Also maybe to explore the prevalence of light skin representation of Latinos in the media.

    Those are some ideas I had :)
