Transcript for 2 women make it their mission to end workplace discrimination
All right, now over to janai with the story of two women helping others to work smart. Janai. Yes, that is right. These two women say that they've faced discrimination in their workplace, and they've now made it their mission to give others the tools to fight discrimination where they work. Mandy price and star Carter are putting a call to action and making their life's work to build a workplace where everyone belongs. We did a great job on our projects. We did come up through the ranks but our previous experiences, they really didn't make us feel like outsiders at times, so it's not unique to us as African-American women in the law firm space. It happens a lot. Reporter: Both Harvard law graduates and despite their stellar resumes, they say they were discriminated against. I remember in a separate occasion someone asking me if I got into Harvard legitimately. It's clear that the person doesn't see me for me and the value that I bring and my expertise. Reporter: Price and Carter created kanarys, a platform which collects real data from employees and employers. Their goal, to improve diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Corporate America has raised over $1.6 billion in the U.S. To fight racism and inequality. Today, 97% of midsize and large companies have diversity and inclusion programs, but 75% of underrepresented employees do not feel like they've personally benefited, and one Harvard study shows that 57% of employees report being discriminated against when it comes to pay and promotion opportunities. It's truly based on data and analytics. So employees can talk to you anonymously. Reporter: Cynt Marshall is CEO of the Dallas mavericks and she says kanarys provides real results. So you can see exactly where your weaknesses and strengths are. Reporter: Tiffany hunter utilized kanarys' free tools on their website from company evaluations during her job search to free webinars on how to talk to management to a safe online community. Is provides a safe place to share how you're feeling as well as to get best practices and tips from others that are on a platform in a safe setting where you do not have to fear retaliation or retribution. And star and Mandy tell us this isn't something we can put a bandage on but companies have to invest in change. They told us two simple things we can do to create includes in the workplace, the first is to add pronouns to your e-mail signature. They say it shows that you're inclusive and hopefully others will follow and they say, be an ally. When you see something like a microaggression in your workplace, speak up and let your co-workers know you've got their back just like you have my back, Dan. Always. I had to. I had to. I knew a shot was coming. That's why I love you. Thank you, janai.
