The Scholarly Kitchen: 'Enabling Your Organization to Be Antiracist'

Jocelyn Dawson, Laura Martin, Megan Seyler, and Damita Snow write the following for The Scholarly Kitchen:

To celebrate the launch of [the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications’] Antiracism Toolkit for Organizations, Damita Snow and Jocelyn Dawson sat down with Laura Martin and Megan Seyler to share why they are excited about this toolkit and what they hope it will achieve. …

[W]ritten by a multiracial group of scholarly communications professionals[, it] is intended to help individuals at all levels within our organizations to implement inclusive policies, procedures, and norms, and ultimately transform their workplaces into inclusive and equitable spaces. The toolkit is designed not only to meet organizations wherever they are in their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) efforts, but also to help them improve on these efforts through a transition from more general DE&I training programs to the design and implementation of antiracist policies and procedures.

The Antiracism Toolkit for Organizations is intended for everyone, regardless of the organization’s size or DE&I resources available—particularly those who are interested in driving organizational transformative change. It is meant to spark more thoughtful conversations about how each of us can both learn and apply our learnings, to create fewer barriers for marginalized colleagues, and to create a more supportive and inclusive workplace environment.
