Future of Work: Race in the Workplace



7:30pm - 8:30pm ET


Every member of the Dartmouth community can help advance racial equity—across all of society, in our communities, and where we work.

For this "Future of Work" event, Dartmouth alumni will lead a discussion about ways to promote racial equity in the workplace.

Learn from alumni who are already creating truly equitable workplaces in every dimension, including changing their business practices and policies, workplace environments, and hiring, retention, and employee engagement strategies. Connect and network with fellow alumni and panelists in a breakout meeting after the webinar. You’ll leave informed and inspired to continue the important and challenging work of fostering better workplace culture.
