The Greater Baltimore Committee’s Bridging the Gap Committee is hosting a “business roundtable” discussion on “Starting the Conversation about Race” on July 14, 2020, at 10 a.m. This session will be moderated by Bridging the Gap Committee members Tony Hill, Managing Partner of Edwards & Hill Furniture, and David Hodnett, Client Advisor with Brown Advisory.
The senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbury and others have sparked international focus on the prevalence of racism in society and the need for decisive action to eradicate racism in our institutions, organizations and communities.
Starting the conversation can sometimes be the most difficult step but we need to engage in difficult and sometimes uncomfortable discussions. We invite you to join us in this brave space to share your perspectives and experiences and hear from others in the business community.
This event is free and open to GBC Members and non-members. Registration is now closed.
Because attendance is limited, we ask that you please cancel your registration if you are unable to participate in the session.
