  • Identify and address some of the most common challenges faced by Black professionals at work in terms of microaggressions, stereotypes and tokenism.
  • Develop a greater understanding of the structural and personal impact of power and your role in uplifting and supporting Black talent through mentorship, sponsorship and active allyship.
  • Better advocate for change to processes and systemic barriers faced by Black professionals within the employee life-cycle of your organization including barriers faced in the hiring, retention and promotion of Black talent.

This will be a meaningful 3-hour session with a focus on sharing practical tools and resources, highlighting what leaders can do to utilize EDIB related practices to better support Black professionals.
