Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Resource Guide

Racism / Antiracism

Racism is prejudice plus power based on race. In the United States, racism is the result of white supremacy. It is a system of power and oppression/advantage and disadvantage based on race and it takes several forms:

  • Individual racism 
  • Interpersonal racism 
  • Institutional racism 
  • Structural racism 

All of these forms are explained in the following link:

Talking about Race: What is Racism and Antiracism? - Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture

Antiracism is actively fighting against racism in all of its forms.

About Race

Co-discussants Anna HolmesBaratunde ThurstonRaquel Cepeda and Tanner Colby host a lively multiracial, interracial conversation about the ways we can’t talk, don’t talk, would rather not talk, but intermittently, fitfully, embarrassingly do talk about culture, identity, politics, power, and privilege in our pre-post-yet-still-very-racial America. This show is "About Race."

Code Switch by NPR

It's the fearless conversations about race that you've been waiting for. Hosted by journalists of color, our podcast tackles the subject of race with empathy and humor. We explore how race affects every part of society — from politics and pop culture to history, food and everything in between. This podcast makes all of us part of the conversation — because we're all part of the story. 

The Diversity Gap

The Diversity Gap is for everyday people who want to pair their good intentions for diversity with true cultural change. Through thoughtful conversation and authentic storytelling, Host Bethaney Wilkinson will inspire and equip you to create the kind of culture you say you want: one where all people are seen, heard, respected, and given what they need to thrive.
