Remember when Martin Lurther King delivered the speech “I have a dream” to end racism in the United States, or when Oprah Winfrey used her voice at Golden Globe to send a powerful message with the purpose of influencing changes for women’s rights?
Today, on the 1st of March, we stand for the World Zero Discrimination Day. This annual United Nations program promotes and increases awareness of global efforts to eliminate discrimination based on, among other things, sex, age, health condition, occupation, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, class, ethnicity, and religion.
As such, in the working world, while employees are constantly looking for non-discriminatory workplaces, employers, at the same time, are increasingly recognizing the value and benefits of diverse and inclusive workers. Recently, leaders and HR professionals have actively developed strategies to establish an open, welcoming and inclusive workplace in order to not only adhere to the law but also to attract a significant large number of ethical global talents.
However, as bold as these promises about greater diversity constantly being seen, 61% of US workers have witnessed experienced some types of discrimination at work, while this number is 55% for UK workers, according to surveys made by Glassdoor. This reveals the sad truth that the majority of enterprises are sure to talk the talk, but not many are willing to step up when it comes to taking real action.
Ranting how much you care about an equitable and diversified workforce or putting up posts to claim that you remember these important world days won’t do any good. The one and only solution is to stop these surface fixes in favour of a more holistic approach.
