L.E.A.D.: Bridging the Divide—Uniting Against Racism

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

L.E.A.D., Leading Equity And Diversity, is a series of conversations where attendees have the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of guests who lead DEI initiatives. This LEAD conversation will address the need to have people of all social identities (across race, gender, class, sexual orientation, etc.) involved in the fight against systemic racism. It’s human nature to be drawn to people who are similar to us and our desire to bond with our community intensifies under threat. How can we avoid an “us vs. them” mentality and mobilize as a unified force against racism? Featured guests Howard Ross and Sonya Jacobs will discuss pathways to bonding and bridging across difference.
