Starbucks Will Be Closed This Afternoon!

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

If you love that afternoon cup of coffee and Starbucks is your favorite, just a heads up that 8,000 of their stores will close today around 2pm for mandatory anti-bias training for their employees. 

Workers at each location will break into small groups to learn together. Today's training will focus on understanding both racial bias and the history of racial discrimination in public spaces.

The company plans to share its materials with the public after the training, and hopes that other businesses will make use of the tools in their own workplaces.
