Sabrina Malter is a Kata coach at a major pharmaceutical company in Germany. Kata is a pattern you practice to learn a skill and mindset until it becomes second nature.

She facilitated a conversation with people from Germany and Switzerland.

They structured the conversation around the following questions:

  • What’s our target condition for an inclusive and equitable work environment (with a focus on racism)?
  • What’s the actual condition now?
  • What obstacles do we think are preventing us from reaching the target condition? Which one will each of us address now?
  • What is our next step? What do we expect?
  • When can we go and see what we have learnt from taking these first steps?

  • Reach out to Black or POC colleagues without being intrusive
