Starbucks To Close All Stores Today For Racial Bias Education

 

Starbucks will be closing more than 8,000 company-owned stores today for racial-bias education.  The training is meant to prevent discrimination to make sure everyone feels safe and welcome.  This stems from the arrests of two black men at a Philadelphia store that sparked nationwide backlash.  Nearly 175,000 Starbucks employees will learn about implicit bias, promoting conscious inclusion and preventing discrimination.  The training will become a part of the Starbucks hiring process and will be available for other companies to use.
