Lessons from Black History Month that Help Your Teams Year-Round

February is Black History Month! We take this month to recognize and honor the contributions of Black people throughout our country’s existence. Today, we also recognize that people have different experiences in our society and workplaces because of how others perceive and treat them.

According to Race in the workplace: The Black experience in the US private sector, published by McKinsey & Co. in 2021, Black workers in the U.S.:

  • Experience less fairness 
  • Have fewer chances to succeed
  • Earn $30,000 less per year than their peers do
  • Are overrepresented in low-wage occupations, such as front-line jobs

But we can do better for our coworkers by making sure our workplaces make everyone feel valued and provide fair opportunities to succeed. Learn how you can support your Black colleagues year-round with the Society for Human Resource Management.
