What’s To Come In 2021 For Diversity, Equity And Inclusion In The Workplace

According to U.S. Census data on the 2020 working population, it’s at the support staff or operations level where racial demographics in the workplace most closely match U.S. demographics overall, although Latinx individuals make up just 10% of this tier of the workforce, compared to the 18.5% of the general population.
The percentage of white staff increases steadily at each level of the corporate ladder, finally representing 85% of executives. At the executive level the racial inequity is particularly significant: though13.4% of the total US population is Black, only 2% of executives are Black;  18.5% of the U.S. population is Latinx, but only 3% of executives are Latinx.
These numbers are striking, and illustrate the fact that inequality is deeply structural in the world of business and will take tremendous ongoing efforts to rectify.
