Starbucks Will Close Company-owned Stores May 29 for Anti-bias Training

Black Men Arrested At Starbucks Agree To Meet With CEO

In response to the arrest of two black men in one of its Philadelphia stores, Starbucks said Tuesday it will provide almost 175,000 employees with "racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination in our stores". Police arrested two black men who were waiting inside the Center City Starbucks which prompted an apology from the company's CEO.

During the May 29 training, Starbucks employees - which the company calls partners - will receive training "designed to address implicit bias, promote conscious inclusion, prevent discrimination and ensure everyone inside a Starbucks store feels safe and welcome", according to a Starbucks news release.

"One of the things we're looking at is this is a time for us to look at policies, to look at our training and development, to look at our store managers and give them the required skills that they need". Some witnesses filmed the interaction, while other commented to news outlets that they had seen other non-black customers use the restroom or sit inside the Starbucks without ordering, yet were not asked to leave. A company announcement said the instruction for the almost 175,000 employees at more than 8,000 Starbucks locations is "designed to address implicit bias, promote conscious inclusion, prevent discrimination and ensure everyone inside a Starbucks store feels safe and welcome". USA Today reports that the men were told restrooms were only for paying customers. He has also met the two men who were arrested.

So much was said about the Warriors' focus at the end of the regular season and how they were waiting for the Playoffs to start. The Warriors shot more than 7 percentage points better than the Spurs in the first half but had nine less field goal attempts.

In an interview on Monday, Mr Johnson said the Philadelphia branch manager who called police on the two men has now left the company. Starbucks says it will make the materials available to other companies.

The councilman, who is black, added that he wanted to "see an actual plan" to ensure that people could go to Starbucks "without fear of being targeted due to their skin color". Starbucks said it is aware of the video. "As you know, we are fully investigating our store practices and guidelines across the company".

"The Starbucks situation provides unsafe insight regarding the failure of our nation to take implicit bias seriously", the NAACP said.
