Advocate for Racial Equity Resources

We ask all of the Mines community to commit to learning more about unconscious bias. Find your own way to take meaningful action towards being an advocate, ally and anti-racist. The following resources are great to start the learning process.



Many of these resources were assembled from a list published by Afar magazine.

If you uphold Mines DI&A values and want to state your commitment as an advocate for racial equity and anti-racism, add your pledge. With Mines’ DI&A commitment to a shared responsibility, we encourage you to join the discussion and share your ideas for social change on the dedicated Teams channel.
