About 51% of women in marginalized racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. and four other countries said they'd experienced racism or discrimination at their current workplace, according to a new survey released last week.
The big picture: The survey's stark results come at a time when some companies are pulling back on certain efforts around diversity and inclusion.
What they did: Researchers from Catalyst, a women's advocacy group, surveyed 2,734 women from Australia, Canada, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.
The research included anyone who selected at least one race or ethnicity besides white.
They asked a yes or no question: "Have you experienced racism or discrimination because of your ethnicity, nationality, race or religion in your current workplace?"
The respondents were also asked whether or not they identified as women or trans women, and if they were LGBTQ. They were also given a palette of eight skin colors and asked to select one that matched their own most closely.
"We really wanted to push the conversation on racism further, and highlight the intersectional nature of racism," said Kathrina Robotham, Ph.D., a senior associate at Catalyst and one of the study's co-authors.
