with Howard Ross & Dr. Johnnetta Cole
Workplaces have always mirrored our larger society, facing the same issues, challenges and divisions. In this thought-provoking presentation, unconscious bias and diversity expert Howard Ross and his colleague, Dr. Johnnetta Cole, President Emerita of Spelman and Bennett Colleges, examine the evolution of the racial and diversity conversation in America and its workplaces. What does it take to create real and lasting change? How have diversity and inclusion efforts advanced social justice and equality? With sights set on a future that will be increasingly diverse and global, these two diversity and inclusion veterans from very different personal backgrounds guide us through the challenges to come. At a time when the level of racial tension and polarization is so high, these two longtime colleagues present a hopeful example of how people can bridge across race, gender and religion to create true ally-ship and organizational environments of inclusion, trust and collaboration.
