This article is great — I feel that it addresses ways non-profits maintain systemic structures, and a corollary article could be written on how these things impact individual employee’s experience of racism. For example, in #6 you talk about using POC as your mouthpiece and shield against other POC; the corollary at the individual level would be that when a POC is only given other POCs to mentor or supervise, they begin to wonder “Does this organization only see me as a POC, or do they appreciate everything else I bring to the table?” which leads to lower POC job satisfaction, then higher rates of attrition, then the organization saying “It’s not our fault POC don’t want to stay with us long-term!”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
