Fighting Covert Racism in the Workplace

May 4, 2:00 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT

Join NCRC’s National Training Academy on May 4, 2022, 2 – 3:30 pm ET for a webinar on how to have inclusive cultures in the workplace. 

Most of us recognize and stand solidly against overt expressions of racism such as racial slurs, violence, and practices of blatant racial segregation and discrimination. But overt racism is only the tip of the iceberg. Racial discrimination is often disguised and shows up in subtle ways, which is covert racism.  Covert racism includes but is not limited to implicit biases, microaggressions, and racially coded language. Often, people who say and do these things are unaware of the racism that informs them.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
