"Lunch and Learn"

Event Details:

As part of our celebration for Black History Month, the New York Urban League will host a virtual "Lunch and Learn" at 1:00PM EST on Thursday, February 25th, 2021. At the center of this hour-long event is a CEO Roundtable, a moderated panel discussion featuring distinguished executives, Charles Phillips, Managing Partner & Co-Founder, Recognize, Frida Polli, Co-Founder & CEO, pymetrics, and James Rhee, Founder & President, FirePine Group; Former CEO, Ashley Stewart. Arva Rice, President & CEO, New York Urban League, is the moderator.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the civil unrest that has swept the nation, Corporate America is turning a critical eye toward its diversity, equality and inclusion policies. Many companies who came out in support of those protesting the killing of George Floyd pledged renewed commitments to fighting systemic racism by announcing action plans that include internal policies for hiring, advancement programs, as well as external efforts to support racial justice organizations. Our CEO Roundtable discussion focuses on the importance of this moment in heightening race relations and how it has changed, enhanced and strengthened diversity work in key areas of business.
