    This session will include a conversation with a panel of four senior-level practitioners from a variety of industries, each of whom has a unique perspective on racial inequality in the workplace. They will share their own personal journey that led them to this perspective, as well as how their organization is currently addressing racism. The conversation will include topics such as resources provided, day-to-day practices, avoiding tokenism, mentoring, and ensuring an inclusive environment. Panelists have agreed to reserve substantial time for an open discussion in which they address top of mind questions from the audience. Of particular interest is understanding the issues that are ripe for future research and curriculum in Business Schools. Hear directly from those with experience in a variety of workplaces the most pressing challenges confronting workers today.
