Business Case for Racial Equity

July 24, 2018

The United States economy could be $8 trillion larger by 2050 if the country eliminated racial disparities in health, education, incarceration and employment, according to "The Business Case for Racial Equity: A Strategy for Growth." The gains would be equivalent to a continuous boost in GDP growth of 0.5 percent per year, increasing the competitiveness of the country for decades to come. The national study released today by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) and Altarum concludes that while racial inequities needlessly stifle economic growth, there is a path forward.The report projects a tremendous boost to the country's workforce and consumer spending when organizations take the necessary steps to advance racial equity. Led by Ani Turner, co-director of Sustainable Health Spending Strategies at Altarum, researchers analyzed data from public and private sources, including the U.S. Census, Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, Brandeis University and Harvard University. Their methodology included applying established models to estimate the economic impact of the disparities faced by people of color.

HR Toolkit for Racial Equity

May 22, 2023

HR Toolkit for Racial EquityThe W.K. Kellogg Foundation's (WKKF) organizational commitment to advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion has been a multi-decade journey. One area of significant progress is in our human resources (HR) policies and practices. Over the years, leaders and organizations have sought out our HR team to ask about our internal strategies – what we've tried, what we've learned and what actions we are taking as a result of our commitments. WKKF created this toolkit to share our experiences, lessons and recommended tools and resources for implementing racial equity strategies as part of a human resources function. The toolkit complements the foundation's "ONE Journey" publication, which shares the foundation's larger racial equity, diversity and inclusion (REDI) efforts more fully.

Using a Skills-Based Hiring Approach as Part of a DEI Strategy - Steelcase Case Study

November 1, 2022

This case study is part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Expanding Equity program, which helps workplaces become more racially equitable places of opportunity. The program supports and inspires companies to take action using four pillars: Attract, Belong, Promote and Influence. Each pillar offers unique opportunities for advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion in companies. This case study lifts up actions from the Attract pillar, which focuses on attracting and hiring professionals of color into a company, in turn increasing representation at all levels of the organization. Steelcase took the following actions:Created a deep data analysis system for hiring practices and listened to employees to understand the current state and to identify opportunitiesResearched best practices for skills-based hiringCreated positions within HR specifically for people who specialize in developing new pipelines and sources for diverse talentRemoved barriers to entry, such as industry experience, whenever possibleRevamped job postings to eliminate biased languageShifted away from a "résumé and pedigree" focus to a skills and competency, evidence-based approachDeveloped a playbook on diverse hiring practices for hiring managers and recruitersTo sustain these efforts, the Steelcase global talent team redesigned its talent acquisition strategy and team structure, identified areas of focus for their recruiting practices, partnered across business units, and engaged current employees to involve them in the hiring process. These efforts resulted in a robust, standardized hiring process that uplifts evidence-based hiring while working to eliminate biases.
