In response to the killings, corporations not only donated millions of dollars to social justice organizations and causes, but many openly used their platforms to join national conversations about racial inequality and social justice and made firm commitments to create meaningful change. Join us for a virtual panel discussion on racial equity, past experiences and how corporations can respond to racial and social injustice to effect change and promote inclusion.
