Join the Black Coalition next Tuesday, February 16th from 4PM-5PM for the Black Leadership Panel, featuring Black leaders across various fields! We will be asking our panelists about their experience in their respective roles as well as how their identity impacts the opportunities have taken and strides they have made.
