This is the web version of raceAhead, Fortune’s daily newsletter on race, culture, and inclusive leadership. To get it delivered daily to your inbox, sign up here.
We are living in deeply challenging times. So, for the time being, RaceAhead will appear in your inbox twice a week for the forseeable future. This will give me time to do deeper reporting into all the issues that matter to this community, including how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting our world. Through it all, I will maintain my focus on race, leadership, equity, and inclusion.
That all said, the raceAhead team is taking this opportunity to iterate a bit.
In addition to the now-familiar essays, op-eds, news roundups, and other historical items, we’ll also be adding some new elements to the newsletter. We think you’ll find them inspiring and useful.
But here’s the really good news.
At the heart of the revamped newsletter will be raceAhead’s Diversity and Inclusion Experts community on LinkedIn, a group of nearly 500 dedicated corporate practitioners, researchers, and other experts working across a variety of industries.
These are the people who are doing the work. We’ll be looking for ways to help this group cross-pollinate their ideas and amplify their impact with their respective constituents. And, I’ll be tapping these experts for on-the-record commentary, data, and recommendations, which I will share with you in raceAhead.
We will also be taking their collective pulse about diversity in the workplace in a brief monthly survey called Data Point, which will be reported exclusively in raceAhead. Our goal is to turn their unique perspectives into a Net Promoter Score-style insight about the changing world that you can refer to.
Join us! If you have diversity and inclusion as part of your corporate job description, this group is clearly for you. Are you a consultant, researcher, educator, race beat journalist, or other person who studies inclusion issues? Please consider joining in. Are you implementing new ways of applying inclusion as a broader theory of change—think venture investor or philanthropist? We’d love to have you, too. And finally, anyone who does unpaid inclusion work, for example, as part of your participation in an employee resource group, we’d love to learn from you and support you.
Other than all this, all the good stuff will stay the same, we promise. raceAhead will resume April 10. Look for us every Tuesday and, of course, on Haiku Fridays.
We are grateful for you.
