Building Inclusion & Anti-Racism as a Core Part of Our New Normal

Presented by LEAD San Diego in partnership with JONES

COVID-19 has forced us to pause and reexamine how our economy, organizations, and systems will function and serve us best for the future. As businesses and schools look at strategies for reopening, a core element of those plans should be inclusion. Building systems that are more reflective of our diverse communities is essential to ensuring we move closer to equality at all levels. LEAD and partner JONES are bringing together local leaders Dr. Steven Jones, Dr. Lida Rafia, Dr. Damien Robinson, and Andrew Simmerman.
