by

On the eve of completing one year of the murder of João Alberto Silveira Freitas, who was beaten by security guards in the Carrefour parking lot, the company held an event this Wednesday (10) to talk about combating racism and the actions it has been implementing since the tragedy.

In June, Carrefour signed a TAC (Term of Adjustment of Conduct) with the courts, worth R$115 million, in which it committed to promoting a series of measures, such as the establishment of an anti-racist plan and zero tolerance for discriminatory practices.

According to Cristiane Lacerda, director of culture and talent development at the Carrefour Brasil Group, this last year, the company increased the rigor with the policies, protocols and processes of actions related to racial discrimination.

She claims that around 40,000 employees underwent racial training and literacy and that the company invested in accelerating the career of black professionals, in addition to other qualification and entrepreneurship programs.

The objective, according to Lacerda, is to reinforce the network’s commitment to fighting structural racism in Brazil. The event was attended by some of the members of the independent external committee that guided the measures taken by the retail giant.

According to the executive, more than 10 thousand black people were hired this year in the group. TAC mentions hiring at least 30,000 in three years.
