Race, Ethnicity, and Culture

We all have multiple identities that affect our life experiences, how we perceive the world around us, and how we are perceived by others. Our gender, race, ethnicity, and culture intersect to shape the opportunities and challenges we face at work. Acknowledging and addressing this reality is key to creating inclusive workplaces.
