Defense contractor Raytheon launched an “anti-racism” program in summer 2020, encouraging white employees to “identify their privilege” and “step aside” in favor of minority employees, according to documents obtained by City Journal‘s Christopher Rufo.

The program, called “Stronger Together,” encouraged employees to “becom[e] an anti-racist today.” One workshop aims to teach employees about the concept of “intersectionality,” which is described as exposing “interlocking systems of oppression” and “break[ing] down power into privilege and marginalization.”

Other suggestions for employees include “what not to say to your black colleagues right now,” which include statements like, “I can’t wait for things to calm down and get back to normal.”

It was not immediately clear how widely the materials were disseminated among Raytheon employees, or whether participation in the workshops was optional or mandatory. Raytheon did not respond to National Review‘s request for comment in time for publication.
