EMEA Virtual Roundtable: Getting Real About Racism: Part 2
Across the board, we have been hearing a strong desire for more dialogue around race and ethnicity to address the discrimination faced by underrepresented groups every day. Following our recent Catalyst Europe Roundtable – Getting Real About Racism, it was clear that one session was not enough to fully understand what each of us can do to create a truly inclusive workplace.
