Topic: Awakening our Support of Black Leaders

With the US still reeling from COVID19 global pandemic and ongoing protests that continue to highlight the country’s long-standing struggles with race, privilege, and prejudice, many people wrestle with feelings of anger, grief, fear, and hopelessness.

In fact, those leaders carry their feelings with them and they can show up in the workplace, on the conference call line or in a company email and present challenges as those leaders seek to prioritize professional performance over personal despair. What can organizations do to support and stand in solidarity with their Black leaders and foster an environment that encourages dialogue and reflection? What have we learned in the past several months and what are we doing about it?
