The social justice events of 2020 have many business leaders reviewing and rethinking policies to make their workplaces more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
As a community manager, have you taken the same approach toward your community?
If not, we have some suggestions for you, compiled by Khoros’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. This committee is made up of Khoros employees from different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, ages, religions, and genders. We encourage you to thoroughly review each suggestion and, if possible, include colleagues or super users (your most active users, or users who are a part of a specific recognition program) in the process.
Before we get into the suggestions themselves, it’s important to mention a few things to keep in mind as you go through this review:

Please keep in mind that completing the suggestions above does not necessarily mean your community is doing all it can to address injustices toward many different groups of people.
We hope you, and your community’s leadership, are also engaging in ongoing education and dialogue around the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion. If you are already doing this, or are planning to, please reply to let us know which resources you have found helpful. And if you are up for it, feel free to share anything you learned from reviewing these suggestions and applying them to your community.
