The U.S. population is rapidly changing, which means the American workplace is as well.
According to the 2020 U.S. Census, over 33 million people in the U.S. identify as two or more races. That’s 1 in 10 people, meaning multiracial people are the fastest-growing demographic group in the country.
Yet, in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) initiatives at work, we often focus on specific groups of people who fall into “one race” categories. Even these discussions tend to be one-dimensional and linear.
