Event Title : State of the Black Employee
Event Date: September 29, 2022 | 9:00AM - 4:30 PM EST
Event Description: We are relentless about engaging and activating employers to pay attention, support, and nurture Black employees with intention to drive business growth. As Black leaders have often struggled to make inroads in a variety of styles of organizations, it is our hope to create a space to amplify the conversation. This will be a space for participants, management thinkers and practitioners to have a collective conversation regarding recognizing the sense of self, growth, resilience, and often unfortunate barriers that occur when you undervalue as well as underserve Black talent. Our aim is to give voice to the Black employee experience through targeted keynotes for executives, guided facilitation and tools for employee resource group gatherings, and operationalized engagement strategies for BIPOC employees and practitioners.
The goal/themes of this symposium, is to make it truly feel down to EARTH when exploring Black and Brownness in organizations:
