“As of 2013, there is not a single profession in the United States (U.S.) that requires its professionals to demonstrate an understanding of structural racism, nor has a single profession or association established an official base of competencies to address race and racism.
Still, in every institution we touch, data show that white people have considerably better outcomes, even when we control for a host of other factors. Recent killings of young men like Trayvon Martin, the lack of legal repercussions, and the ensuing national conflict underscores the urgency of deepening our efforts to address institutionalized racism. While the U.S. has made some gains with respect to representation and race relations, the country is hungry for an effective way to achieve racial equity.
