From Pledge to Progress: Corporate America One Year After George Floyd’s Death

May 2021

After the killing of George Floyd in May 2020, many leaders across corporate America spoke up and out against systemic racism. They issued statements, lent financial power to anti-racism causes, and made DEI a priority within the walls of their organizations. It has been a year since George Floyd’s death and we at Seramount wanted to know just how far corporate America has come (and how far it still needs to go) as it relates to addressing racism in the workplace.

In April 2021, Seramount conducted a national survey of 2,431 college-educated professionals at companies with at least 5,000 US employees about their perceptions of racism in the workplace and their organization’s support for anti-racism efforts.
