Agenda and Speakers

Tuesday, October 27

1:00 PM Eastern – Co-creating a More Equitable World

Organizations have issued statements of solidarity to reinforce company values about treatment of others, zero tolerance of bias, equality and inclusion. That coupled with growing public scrutiny regarding organizational policies and practices has caused many leaders to re-evaluate their own commitment to racial equality and the impact of racism on the constituents and stakeholders they serve. As institutions seek to understand their role in responding to current incidents and historical, systemic issues, we have the possibility to transform in ways that may have seemed inaccessible in the past. As organizations begin to engage in more nuanced conversations about race in America, it is also an opportunity to examine our complicity in perpetuating and enabling structural racism.

Chevara Orrin

Diversity & Inclusion Practitioner

Chevara Orrin, an award-winning diversity, equity & inclusion practitioner, social entrepreneur and human rights activist believes that the only way through, is together. She weaves a compelling, profound personal journey together with her expertise developing innovative initiatives and leading organizations towards more inclusive workplaces. Chevara will provide historical context, help us interrogate our own complicity in systems of inequity, share strategies on how to become allies, and provide tools and resources so that we can begin building a more just world.
