Racial literacy is a new method for addressing the racially disparate impacts of technology.

It is a skill that can be developed, a capacity that can be expanded. To advance racial literacy in tech requires three foundations:

An intellectual understanding of how structural racism operates in algorithms, social media platforms, and technologies not yet developed;
An emotional intelligence concerning how to resolve racially stressful situations within organizations; and
A commitment to take action to reduce harms to communities of color.
