As business leaders, we strive to build inclusive, conscious companies that are connected to our communities. Right now, the world is at an inflection point: consciousness and conversation about structural racism is gaining momentum in the mainstream, and we have the opportunity to turn that into meaningful, organized action.
While many are initiating and leading productive dialogue within their organizations, we often receive requests for insight, guidance, and practical tools to make a greater impact—within companies and in the broader community. Join Beth Chandler, President and CEO at YW Boston, and Corey Thomas, Chairman and CEO of Rapid7, for a conversation hosted by Conscious Capitalism Boston. These business and cultural leaders will share their experiences on how their organizations have gone—and are going—about diversity, equity, and inclusion work. You’ll hear about their initiatives, challenges, and future hopes, and leave with their best advice and tools to start turning your conversations into actions.
