Thursday, November 12th, 2-4 p.m.
Join Dominque Morgan, executive director of Black and Pink, for a session focused on #JEDI. Without #JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) in our work, we will always have a paradigm of the have and have nots. (I) have the information, (I) have the key to your liberation, you must listen to me because (I) know best. We know now more than ever that we must activate a cultural change in employment practices that removes the barriers to ownership of your success. Positioning leaders in the work who represent the population that they are servicing is a strong and effective first step that can lead to a wellness ecosystem that can be a route to individual liberation.
