Reconciling Change Management's Blindspot: Addressing Racial Equity in the Industry

Change management is a framework developed to help organizations navigate transitions and transformations. However, the industry was developed without considering racial equity, leading to a blind spot in the framework. In recent years, the industry has begun to address this blindspot and work towards reconciling it.

One way the industry addresses the blindspot in change management is by recognizing the impact of systemic racism on organizations. This includes acknowledging that racism can impact an organization's culture, policies, and practices and that addressing racial equity is essential to successful change management.

Another way the industry addresses the blindspot is by incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) principles into change management frameworks. This includes ensuring that DEI is considered throughout the change management process and that diverse perspectives and voices are included in decision-making.

The industry is also working to address the blind spot by providing training and education on racial equity and DEI principles. This includes offering workshops, webinars, and other resources to help change management practitioners better understand the impact of systemic racism and how to incorporate DEI principles into their work.

Finally, the industry is working to address the blind spot by partnering with organizations specializing in racial equity and DEI. This includes collaborating with organizations that have expertise in addressing systemic racism and seeking out diverse perspectives and voices to inform change management practices.


Wrapping Up

In conclusion, change management was developed without considering racial equity, leading to a blindspot in the framework. However, the industry is working to address this blindspot by recognizing the impact of systemic racism on organizations, incorporating DEI principles into change management frameworks, providing training and education on racial equity and DEI principles, and partnering with organizations specializing in racial equity and DEI. The industry can create more equitable and inclusive change management practices that benefit all stakeholders by doing so.
