Where Are We Today?
Retail Is Going Through A Reckoning
First, it was the Coronavirus that shuttered brick and mortar stores and company warehouses throughout the world for weeks, even months at a time. Every day it seemed companies were permanently closing large numbers of stores, or worse, shutting down operations entirely. Just as we were all coming to grips with one major world event, another took foothold.
After the death of George Floyd, there became an awakening to the racial disparities and injustices faced by Black people in America, not only in personal circumstance, but also in the workplace. Many corporations made statements speaking out against racism and in support of the Black community and the broader community of People of Color.
However, many Brands were then called out for their actions (hiring practices, lack of diversity in decision-making roles, lack of diversity in their suppliers, treatment of employees of color) not matching their words.
