HR’s “Combating Racism Resources” Raise Awareness, Encourage Action, & Offer Support

June 25, 2020

HR's Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Team has compiled a curated list of multimedia resources to help employees on their personal journey toward understanding and combating racism.

Even in the midst of a health pandemic, instances of inequity, violence, and bias continue to be displayed through the recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, and Breonna Taylor. Further, the rise in xenophobia toward Asian individuals and countless other events have left many feeling lost as to what they can do to make a difference.

One aspect of the D&I Team’s efforts is to encourage a personal commitment to learning and development specifically focused on combating racism.  

“As we grieve the loss of lives and process a range of emotions, many of us are seeking ways to convert our energy into meaningful action that will contribute to the positive change we want to see in ourselves, our families, and our communities. Thus, one of the first steps we can take is to educate ourselves and others,” said Tiffany Flippen, HR’s senior diversity and inclusion specialist. “We hope these resources will not only provide our employees with the knowledge and tools to take action related to the current events, but also continue to advance our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts to further cultivate an inclusive Princeton."

The “Combating Racism” resources were compiled for self-paced learning and provide content to read, watch, and leverage to take action. They have been categorized by what one can do for one’s self, family, and community:
