Kendi’s comments on tearing up diversity statements and instead making a workplace commitment to antiracism and to define; what a racist idea is, what an antiracist idea is, what a racist policy is, what an antiracist policy is… and to commit to an overall antiracist culture… very interesting to think about what that means in relation to the work that we all do.
How does that relate to 764 as an organization, to each individual job. How it is extrapolated between co-workers, between costumer and supervisor, between the wardrobe department as a hole to the rest of a production. How it applies to contracts and negotiating.
Obviously, we don’t operate in a traditional corporate setting, and I’m curious to think about about how we can bring this idea into what we do. Very interesting.
