About the event

In the horrifying wake of continued violence against Black and African American people, who are also disproportionately suffering and dying from COVID-19, there is much work to be done across all sectors of work and society if we are to ever see a more equitable and racially just world.

Join us for a hard, powerful, and action-oriented conversation with thought leaders on issues of race, justice, and equity. Learn about racial justice and equity issues in the workplace and beyond, how we got here, what strategies have worked and have not worked, and what you can do as individuals and leaders. Leave with concrete, actionable, “how to” strategies for moving forward issues of racial justice and equity productively and toward a more equitable future for all.
