In an August 2022 webinar, Catalyst’s experts unpacked the distinct ways that organizations and leaders can create community and drive inclusion through Allyship.
Join us during Black History Month for a timely follow-up conversation on effective sponsorship and how allies can help to break down systemic barriers that impede Black women’s career progression.
According to Catalyst research, 89% of Black women say that they aspire to leadership positions in their workplace. At the same time, 41% report being highly on guard at work to protect against racial and ethnic bias. How can leaders and managers support Black women and create meaningful career pathways to support their advancement and leadership?
Through candid conversation, our panel of industry leaders and research experts will discuss the following using Catalyst Award-winning practices:
- Ways to foster conversations that increase awareness; build understanding and help address the unique barriers to advancement impacting Black women along their career pathways.
- The vital role of management and leaders in embedding a culture of effective sponsorship in organizations; and how sponsorship connects to strategies to build more inclusive workplaces for Black women.
- Advancing racial equity by increasing awareness of emotional tax and supporting Black women in growing their careers, developing job skills, reentering the workforce, and expanding access to well-paying careers
We invite executive leaders, managers, HR leaders, DEI practitioners, and champions of inclusion to join the discussion. The event is complimentary for Catalyst Supporters. Registration is mandatory.
