There’s no neat ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to tackling racism, says LeRon Barton. Speaking with HRD, the writer, author and much in demand TEDx speaker on all things race and equity says that he’s fed up of diversity groupings in HR – terms that essentially throw a blanket experience on anyone that’s not white. “I think it's very lazy,” says Barton. “It essentially says that, oh, because you're not white, we all have the same experience, the same problem, the same issues. And yes, we do all suffer against racism and white supremacy – but our individual experiences with that are different. That’s why I think terms like BIPOC are goofy.”
