More Than Just A Hashtag: The Lessons in 2020 and What’s Next
The confluence of events of 2020 has forever changed our lives: beginning with COVID-19, the ensuing economic crisis, civil unrest, and seismic protests driving a sea of change. We will be speaking with two dynamic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion professionals to talk about what we can learn from 2020. On December 8, 2020 Kenway hosted a women’s networking event with special guests Kara Wright and Deirdra Donahue.
