In addition to experiencing disproportionately higher mortality from COVID-19, African Americans continue to face daily injustices perpetuated by systemic racism impacting all aspects of their physical and mental health. As we confront systemic racism during a global pandemic, conversations around allyship and supporting African American staff and colleagues is more important than ever before.

Join us this Thursday, June 11 from 1-2 p.m. ET to discuss the ways allies can create courageous spaces to support African American staff and colleagues and how to build in organizational training and support mechanisms to establish responsive workplaces.
