CWIP’s Courage Centered Dialogue Series presents Conversations on Racial Equity and Justice in the Workplace.
The second program in our series will feature a panel of individuals currently engaged in, or with past experience in, addressing racial equity and justice in the workplace. Our diverse set of panelists will guide us through an overarching discussion of how racial inequities manifest in the work place and why racial justice and equity are critical to organizational success. The panelists will respond to prepared questions as well as questions from the audience regarding how we, as individuals, organizations, and communities, can help advance racial equity.
