Season 1, Episode 1: Racism at work: In the light of Covid-19
You may think racism is a thing of the past but as Senior Partner Professor Binna Kandola OBE explains, ‘Racism has been likened to a virus that mutates, taking on different forms as it adapts to a changing environment. Its mutation is made harder to observe by it being deeply embedded, not only in our traditions and institutions, but also in our unconscious lives.’
This episode is the audio from a webinar presented by Binna in June 2020. Binna looks at the current thinking about why minorities were more likely to contract the virus and to die from it. He discusses the effect outbreaks have on xenophobia and racism more generally and critically, he looks at the potential impact these issues and concerns are having on minorities and also – what organisations can do about it.
