  • Stanford Anti-Racism Toolkit
    This toolkit from Stanford University brings together tools to work independently, and as a team, toward creating an anti-racist company. The first stage of this toolkit is, “Start with Self.” Much like our name of US2, which stands for Understand Self to Unite Society, we believe that understanding one’s own experience and biases is essential before attempting to enact change in the workplace. This toolkit is beneficial for anyone looking to assess where they are at on their own anti-racist journey and how that knowledge can translate into the workplace. It also contains many lists of additional resources to further your exploration of racial equity in the workplace.
  • Questions to ask yourself about hiring bias

This guide is only two pages long and can easily function as a small poster series at your workplace to keep these ideas present in employees’ minds.
  • Path to becoming Anti-Racist Organization
    This Anti-Racism Toolkit for Organizations presented by the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) is the newest of their antiracism guides. There are several articles, tools, and resources available for organizations to consider how implementing antiracism into the climate and culture, including how to use measurement and metrics to assess the status quo, and tips for allyship in situations where BIPOC staff may be experiencing racial harm.
  • Professional Organizations for Women and Minorities
    A common question posed by many businesses and organizations is how to increase diverse candidates in the hiring pool for position openings. The University of Chicago compiled a list of professional organizations dedicated to developing opportunities for marginalized individuals in specific professions. These organizations are great places to start when considering outreach and recruitment, as well as a way to provide external resources for your employees.

  • Do the toolkits for combatting racial discrimination and becoming an anti-racist organization inspire you to begin and/or improve upon anti-racist efforts within your company? If so, how? If not, what would make them more inspiring?
