“Like you, the continuous and all-too-frequent events where young Black and Brown people lose their lives at the hands of a system sworn to serve and protect has our hearts filled with anger and sadness. As an organization focused on pursuing equity in the workforce and expanding access to educational opportunities, we’re left to ask: What good is an equitable workplace when Black and Brown people continue to be robbed of the right to grow old, and to fully explore their passions and realize their potential?”

In this issue, we mourn the death of Ma’Khia Bryant, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, and all of the lives taken at the hands of law enforcement. The issue also contains announcements around our annual fundraising event, The Working Lunch, our Digitized Career Foundations, and more!

Together, we will ensure more women, families, and communities can build their economic power and thrive.

All new or increased gifts will be matched by an anonymous donor!
