How To Use Lean Thinking To Create An Antiracist Organization

In the wake of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, many socially responsible companies made a pledge to become an antiracist company and address racial inequity. They made public statements denouncing systemic racism, donated money to social justice organizations, and doubled-down on training more employees on unconscious bias. Now what?

More has to be done to transform organizations to produce racial equity. The Lean thinking improvement system has a long history of transforming organizations for better outcomes and the greater good. Check out this 1-hour webinar to see how a Lean-thinking framework can be adapted to help companies achieve the social justice they seek.
