    Summary: Working to keep Black Lives Matter going as a movement – not a moment in time, OD professionals have a responsibility to be as informed as possible in both our personal knowledge and views as we seek professionally to educate and facilitate others on their own journey. 

    Join our facilitators Katrina Scott, Senior Manager, Diversity & Sustainability and Kesha Kent, National Diversity & Inclusion, Community Engagement-Talent Specialist as we listen to understand, respect different points of view and redesign ‘old’ thinking. Join our facilitators to ask questions and engage in dialogue with peers about race and racism as we share and learn with each other.

    Date & Time: Wednesday, August 26th from 8:00am- 9:30am in a FREE virtual Meeting for all registered participants.
