I belong; it is a space to discuss race and equality in the workplace. Attendees will speak freely about their personal experiences and collaborate on action items focusing on ways spaces of work can assist and provide opportunities for advancement and leadership to individuals from underrepresented groups. Questions guiding this Session include, “What are some common challenges?” and “Have you experienced someone advocating for you on your behalf?” Participants will explore how though they each may be different on the surface, they share similar goals in the workplace.
