The company I use to work for did a COVID layoff and the person in charge of our department let go of every single Black woman on his team and a couple of Latinos, but not one white employee was laid off. He was allowed to do this with no oversight or repercussions, he got away with it scot-free. It was evident that this international firm talked a good game about “Diversity and Inclusion” but when push came to shove, it turned a blind eye and allowed blatant systemic racism to thrive well within its midst.
