Whistleblowing While Black

What role does race play when reporting fraud, waste, and abuse? Where do Diversity and Inclusion programs fail and what is a better way forward? According to a Politico article, it is a different experience for people of color, especially women, when it comes to being believed. It goes on to say, “Silicon Valley has been under pressure for years to diversify its workforce, but companies often don’t do enough to ensure the women of color joining its ranks have the resources and support they need to adjust to a hegemonic internal culture, the whistleblowers say.”  

What can we do to make it safer for minorities in government or the private sector to be able to speak?

The Stigma of Whistleblowing Within NonProfits

Nonprofits are not immune to corruption or bullies. They are like any other workplace. However, for the whistleblower who joins such a team, there can be an even more complicated path to disclosing wrongdoing because of the risk to the entire mission. There is a commitment to the goals and objectives of the organization. Its beneficiaries rely upon the services provided and if the whistleblowing causes the mission to be impacted, the whistleblower can suffer even greater consequences of guilt and moral injury when problems are not fixed.
