In a June 2 written statement, ATD President and CEO Tony Bingham says in part, "Injustice, inequality, and racism, in every form, are reprehensible. If we want to create a world that truly works better we must do the hard work of building cultures, communities, and workforces that are equitable, where diversity and inclusion are not buzzwords, but ingrained in the fabric of who we are and how we live and work."
To provide resources to members, ATD has curated its D&I content—many of which are TD articles—online at td.org/diversity-inclusion-resources. I encourage you to take a look at the numerous articles, videos, blog posts, and other material on the D&I webpage. Note that this isn't a static project. As you read this message, I'm in the process of working with my team to acquire more articles that focus on D&I.
In the months ahead, we will publish additional content in the magazine geared toward how talent development professionals can play a role in organization-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. The articles may take shape in the form of best practices, case studies, research, and interviews.
We all know that effecting change is not an overnight process. And I am committed to have TD do its part to present information that will help you move your organization toward a more equitable, inclusive, empathetic, and antiracist workplace.
There's more to come.
