Anti-Racism and Anti-Hate Forum: An Open Discussion on Professional & Personal Experiences of Racism, Bias, Discrimination, and Hate in the Workplace

Through the Central Chicagoland PSA Anti-Racism Collaborative, we will launch three Anti-Racism Forums (each at Dreyer, GSAM, and IMMC, respectively, and AMG team members are included). We have asked team members to complete a pre-survey on professional and personal experiences of racism, bias, discrimination, and hate. Survey responses are anonymous. 


This conference is being held virtually.
