Black Women Fighting Workplace Racism: An Open Dialogue

Join the West Philadelphia Promise Zone on Tuesday, April 13th from 6:00PM-7:30PM EST via Zoom!

The West Philadelphia Promise Zone’s Workforce and Economic Opportunity Committee presents a virtual discussion on how to stop racism in the workplace and what you can do if you are affected. Panelists will share their own experiences and you will be able to speak directly to the panel as well. You can submit your questions to panelists upon registration.  If you have experienced workplace racism, we are looking for attendees to share their stories to the group, including stories of resilience. This event will not be recorded so your story will not be shared outside of the event. If you are interested in sharing, answer the question on the registration page and we will contact you in advance. You can also email and we will be in touch.
