SCA Racial Equity and Justice Series – Session 6

Our first discussion in 2021 will focus on:
Washington Employers for Racial Equity

Friday, January 8, 2021
2:30 – 4:00 PM

We will be joined by former Washington State Governor Chris Gregoire, who will speak to a new initiative of Challenge Seattle and the Washington Roundtable, Washington Employers for Racial Equity.

This growing list of 55+ companies has set out clear collective goals in a Commitment to Progress, which include achieving parity in hiring, pay, and promotion for Black Washingtonians, supporting Black-owned businesses, and investing a combined $2 billion over the next five years to support racial equity. The coalition is committed to accountability for progress and will join its voices to those advocating for racial equity in Washington.

Please register here by Thursday, January 7, 2021. SCA Forums are open to Staff and Elected Officials from SCA Member Cities.
