Starbucks’ Company Wide Racial Bias Training

Next month, 8,000 Starbucks locations will close the afternoon of May 29th for a company wide racial bias training. This decision was made after an embarrassing incident last week in Philadelphia where two black men were allegedly arrested for “trespassing.” The video of this went viral and CEO Kevin Johnson addressed this incident quickly with an apology and an announcement of the training that came this past Tuesday. The upcoming training will involve nearly 175,000 employees with hopes that incidents like this one will never happen again.
