The video of the presentation is available here.
With increased attention on systemic racism and inequality, organizations in the co-op sector are seeking to centre racial justice in their work. But how best can we do that? Drawing on her decades of experience in this area, Dr. Gordon-Nembhard, a professor at John Jay College, City University of New York, and member of the U.S. Cooperative Hall of Fame, will explain why creating real change will take more than diversity and inclusion.
