Structural Racism in America: What Is It? How Do You Recognize It? What Can We Do To End It?

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee in a thought-provoking discussion about Structural Racism in America and its impact on economic outcomes, workforce and criminal justice. Two of Baltimore’s leaders in the fight against systemic racism — Diane Bell-McKoy, President and CEO of Associated Black Charities, and Dr. Sheridan Todd Yeary, Senior Pastor of Douglas Memorial Community Church and Affiliates — will discuss the realities of racism in the workplace and the community.

This webinar will serve to enhance awareness of racism. It will educate participants about some of racism’s impacts, including on the lack of growth of our economy, preventing the advancement of workers, and subjecting African-Americans to public safety injustices.
