Join us in creating a space to listen to and reflect on Black stories and learn from Black thought leadership. In corporate spaces dominated by White culture, Black and other minority groups have not been given space to create community and to freely share their lived experiences. As a result of silencing Black voices, we miss out on incredible stories of strength, creativity and mentorship.
On August 6th, join us in holding space for Black voices in a ninety minute webinar discussion, “Real Conversations on Blackness”. Powerful speakers within the business, HR and DEI space kick off the discussion, sharing their experiences as Black professionals and Humans.
Panelists will create a safe and exploratory space to:
- Highlight Black thought leadership, perspective and stories
- Create a deeper understanding and honoring of intersectionality and the importance of community
- Highlight what the Black community is seeking from people in the Non-Black community and ignite action from allies
- Offer ways to engage in inclusive storytelling and community building in the workplace
- Lead with heart! Call others in versus calling them out
- Normalize making and learning from mistakes
- Be present and active in the conversation; exercise the courage to participate in the conversation
- Change the world! During the conversation, take note of actions to bring with you back to the world
