Date: Wednesday, July 14, 2021
Time: 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. CDT
Location: Zoom (link provided with registration)
Equity and allyship – words that are both difficult to globally define, and yet now more than ever, are at the foreground of workplace vernacular. From internal communications and conversations to larger strategy sessions to external marketing and customer interface, these principles are impacting all elements of business. Yet, a year after one of the largest racial reckonings this country has faced in decades, and with ongoing calls for businesses to be at the forefront of the fight for equity, how do statements translate into action? How can we all create and more importantly enact initiatives where true allyship and true equity are the end goals? Together, with Fellicia Foster, Vice President and Head of Inclusion, Equity and Diversity at BMO Harris Bank, we will ask these tough questions and explore some of the tangible actions we can all take that go beyond signing a petition or writing a check to create actual, structural change in our professional lives.
