So You Want to Talk About Taking Action?

Are you ready to move past performative allyship regarding race equity work in your organization? Join Beth DeSantis and Rena Dixon of Fact Forward for a discussion on how working together to move through difficult conversations can move race equity work forward. They will share steps their organization has taken to put an actionable plan in place, resources used, and stories on how their relationship has not only influenced the tough conversations about racism in the workplace but led to taking action.
