NAACP Boulder County presents:
BLACK TALK: RACE IN THE WORKPLACE

Rick Sterling, founding partner of Sterling-Rice Group (SRG)
Frederick Davis, Head of Talent Acquisition at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)
Talking about, or even acknowledging, race at work can be difficult - we get it!
Our world is becoming more divisive each day; Boulder County is not immune to that.
Whether it’s an off-hand comment made innocently, or a derogatory word used purposefully, the damage done affects not only the people involved directly, but has the potential to harm the entire workplace environment if not dealt with.
Let us give you some tools to help you, so if (when) it happens at your company, you’ll have the resources – and confidence – to handle it quickly and professionally.
This exciting event is sponsored in part by the Boulder Chamber, and will be hosted by Jude Landsman, chair of the Economic Opportunity Committee, with panelists Annett James, President of NAACP Boulder County, Rick Sterling, founding partner of Sterling-Rice Group (SRG), and Frederick Davis, Head of Talent Acquisition at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
Founded in 1909, The NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization, boasting over 3,000 branches in the United States, and members throughout the world, who are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities.
Registration is open to all Boulder County business owners and their staff, a Zoom link will be provided to all registrants; please reserve your spot by registering HERE.
