Bringing Anti-Racist Practices into 2021
To close out 2020, we took a look at our most popular posts of the year. One message is clear: You’re interested in how you can build and sustain an anti-racist culture.
This year, we covered how you could bring the BLM movement into your workplace and integrate anti-racism into your teaching. We also gathered anti-racism resources that guided you in learning more about and speaking out about systemic racism and acting as an ally to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC).

As we enter 2021 under a new administration and evolving COVID-19 challenges, it’s time to cement your commitment to building anti-racist culture in the year to come.
Make an Ongoing Commitment
Whether it’s a weekly volunteer shift or a recurring monthly donation, find an action that you only have to commit to once, but that prompts you to act on a regular basis. This is an easy way to stay engaged when the media moves its attention away from issues of systemic racism, or when life gets in the way of your good intentions to support Black, Indigenous and other people of color in the long run.
Join a Community
A great way to ensure you’re regularly invited to take anti-racist actions is to join a community of activists, anti-racist educators, or to partner with like-minded business leaders. Community support is the single most effective way to stay engaged. It helps you weather challenges that occur along the way to building anti-racist culture. It also establishes a foundation of resources, new connections, and innovations.
Listen to BIPOC Anti-Racist Scholars
Whether you follow BIPOC scholars on social media or read foundational books, such as Ibram Kendi’s How To Be An Antiracist, continue to listen to BIPOC voices. Use what you learn to help inform your ongoing actions.
