In August 2022, Catalyst’s panel of experts explored Allyship in the Workplace: Building Community with Inclusive Practices in Times of Crisis, unpacking the distinct ways organizations and leaders create community and drive inclusion through Allyship. Join us during Black History Month for a timely follow-up conversation as the Catalyst team dives deeper into effective, empowered sponsorship and how allyship is key to breaking down systemic barriers that impede Black women’s career progression.
According to Catalyst research, 89% of Black women say that they aspire to leadership positions in their workplace. At the same time, 41% report being highly on guard at work to protect against racial and ethnic bias. How can leaders and managers support Black women and create meaningful career pathways to support their advancement and leadership? Through candid conversation, our panel of industry leaders and research experts will discuss the following using Catalyst award-winning practices:
- Ways to foster conversations to increase awareness, understand and address unique barriers to advancement impacting Black women along their career pathways
- The vital role of management and leaders to embed effective sponsorship in organizations and how it connects to strategies to build more inclusive workplaces for Black women
- Advancing racial equity by increasing awareness of minority tax while supporting Black women in growing their careers, developing job skills, reentering the workforce, and expanding access to well-paying careers
We invite executive leaders, managers, HR leaders, DEI practitioners, and champions of inclusion to join the discussion. The event is complimentary for Catalyst Supporters. Registration is mandatory.
