Adediran will write a book about how large companies–often in response to societal and shareholder pressure–construct public images demonstrating their commitment to racial equity. She documents that too often companies use carefully constructed images to shield themselves from criticism about racial inequities instead of enacting corporate policies that would benefit communities of color.
