"why do my diverse employees keep leaving?"
BLACK and WHITE,
Black White Green (BWG) Business Solutions was founded in 2018 with the mission to make the world a better and more cohesive place.
BWG stands for "black, white, green" which is derived from the idea that diversity is not about black and white but green.
Focusing on diversity and inclusion will help your company to become more efficient, productive, and profitable. BWG specializes in helping individuals and businesses grow through inclusive strategies and techniques.

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workshop discussion, led by Janice Z. Gassam Asare, Ph.D., where employees are invited to consume one piece of historical content (movie, video, TV show, podcast, article, social media post, etc.), digest what they have seen or heard and then discuss their interpretations, understanding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The purpose of this activity is to use historical content to help participants understand and become more aware of the unique experiences of different racial groups.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.
“If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free since our freedom would necessitate the destruction of all systems of oppression.”
