Author Talks, McKinsey & Company
Author Talks, McKinsey & Company, 18 November 2022
A workplace free of racism and sexism can start with a better understanding of the historical relationship between Black and White women, says Dr. Tina Opie [2019-20 MIT MLK Visiting Associate Professor].
In this edition of Author Talks [a series of interviews with authors of books on business and beyond], McKinsey Global Publishing’s Raju Narisetti chats with Dr. Tina Opie, chief vision officer of Opie Consulting Group, about her new book, Shared Sisterhood: How to Take Collective Action For Racial and Gender Equity At Work (Harvard Business Review Press, October 2022), cowritten by Beth A. Livingston. Opie shares strategies for overcoming obstacles to the race and gender-based discrimination she says, statistically speaking, is happening at your organization. An edited version of the conversation follows.
