WHAT: The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is hosting the virtual NSBE ALL IN Summit to introduce and connect corporations with proven programs to help deliver on their commitment to drive real change for the Black community.
WHEN: Wednesday, November 18, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (EST)
WHY: During the height of the reactions to the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, corporations issued statements and pledges daily. Many of these companies were interested in supporting the fight for social justice but struggled with how to translate that desire to actionable, measurable corporate initiatives.
The NSBE ALL IN Summit connects those corporations that have committed to affecting real change for the Black community with proven ways to do so.
