The tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks and too many others have prompted a flood of angry voices demanding justice and radical change. Many of us have joined those voices in our communities. As higher ed HR leaders committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, we are also uniquely positioned to be voices for change — and to amplify the voices already at work — on our campuses. But where do we start? We start by listening. When we actively listen to employees’ experiences, thoughts and emotions around racial injustice, we learn from their perspectives and equip ourselves with new lenses. These conversations aren’t easy, but it’s time to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
