Explore workplace diversity and its impact

The racial demographic in Minnesota has changed tremendously over the years. The state has seen a significant increase in Latino and African immigrants and an overall increase in the number of people of color. As the population of people of color continues to increase and the percentage of the white population continues to decrease, many white people have silently wondered how increased racial diversity will affect their jobs. Will white people be pushed out of their jobs to accommodate the tremendous increase of people of color? Is diversity and inclusion for everyone or just people of color?

Learn more about this topic in the next Foundations of Equity course from 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 7, at the Minneapolis Central Library.
