Cindy-Ann Thomas and her guests Littler Shareholder Allan King, and author and historian Carroll “C.R.” Gibbs provide a multi-faceted examination of the label “People of Color.” In this podcast, Cindy-Ann, Allan, and C.R. address the following, head-on: - What are the historical underpinnings for the “People of Color” label? - Does or should any particular one racial group “own” this label? - What are the social and legal challenges associated with this designation? - What are the shortcomings and advantages for an organization that applies this term to categorize its D&I initiatives? - Is it time to update this term? Or is “People of Color” an expression that is here to stay for the foreseeable future? Listen to this podcast to hear an in-depth discussion and analysis of the answers to these questions and more. People sometimes struggle with identity labels, in a genuine effort not to offend. We can help organizations in their D&I training efforts on complex topics like these.
