Companies are currently experiencing
The Great Resignation.
You don't want to be left wondering "why do my under-represented employees keep leaving?"
Black White Green (BWG) Business Solutions was founded in 2018 by Dr. Janice Gassam Asare with the initial purpose of helping organizations and institutions attract, develop, and retain employees from racialized backgrounds.
BWG stands for "black, white, green" which was derived from the idea that diversity is not about black or white but green.
By focusing on the most marginalized, all employees will be benefit. We are past the point where businesses need to understand the "business case" for diversity.
Any company that fails to prioritize the needs of its employees, especially those from marginalized communities, will not be sustainable.
The mission and purpose of BWG is to help equip organizations and institutions with the tools to remove systemic barriers that perpetuate inequities.

The Pink Elephant: Consume Digest Dialogue (CDD)
This is a facilitated workshop discussion, led by Janice Z. Gassam Asare, Ph.D., where employees are invited to consume one piece of historical content (movie, video, TV show, podcast, article, social media post, etc.), digest what they have seen or heard and then discuss their interpretations, understanding and what they have learned with fellow employees.
The purpose of this activity is to use historical content to help participants understand and become more aware of the unique experiences of different racial groups. This activity is designed to build empathy, awareness, and understanding so that employees are able to be effective allies and advocates for various groups.
