We'll be hosting a series of events over the course of Black History Month focusing on thriving through uncertainty. 2020 has been a tumultuous year, and one that has had a big impact on the black community – from black people being more at risk of suffering adverse effects of Covid-19, to the events that sparked the heightening of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Through the lens of these events, we'll be considering how to navigate through these uncertain times, to be activists, and to bring about improvements to the workplace and our society.

Speakers from a range of professional backgrounds will present on how they've approached various challenges, and the role that they play in advocating for what they believe in.
