Virtual Learning: Beyond the Black Box: How your organization can support Black and Diverse employees

Thank You to Our Event Sponsor:


Event Overview:
Many organizations posted a social media response confirming their dedication to supporting Black employees and consumers. However, many advocates and allies are asking, what else can we do to enhance equity? Join us for a conversation discussing groundbreaking best practices, limitations within current systems, and recommendations to keep your organization moving towards long-term equity and growth.

Our learning objectives for the event will be:

  • Enhanced understanding of limitations of existing HR systems
  • Increased awareness of the emerging conversation around systemic equality
  • Introduction of tools and resources for organizations interested in increased equity

This program has been submitted for SHRM and HRCI recertification credit hour.
