Organizations are more profitable, more attractive to their talent, more innovative, and provide better customer service when there is diversity in their leadership. The need for greater diversity in leadership is a top priority for most CEOs, which creates an opportunity for growth if you capitalize on it. Jennifer will share strategies to help individuals ignite their careers and how participation in Diversity Councils and ERGs can serve as a game changer in that journey.
Panelists: Dr. Daniel Hollar, Judge Hubert Grimes, Dr. Kideste Yusef
Do you know what Critical Race Theory (CRT) is? Do you know what it isn’t?
Critical Race Theory has become quite the headline maker in the last year, but misconceptions about what it is (and what it isn’t) are still very common. When headlines make a subject seem divisive, that can make it intimidating to talk about.
We’re engaging a panel of 3 experts for a safe and open conversation from different perspectives surrounding Critical Race Theory. We want to help you really understand CRT so you can answer any questions you get, and have thoughtful discussions of your own.
Sit down with us for this open and educating experience, ask the panelists your questions and finally understand one of Corporate America’s most misunderstood subjects.
