America is on high alert as we look ahead to a critical time for racial justice. On Monday, closing arguments commenced in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer accused of causing the death of George Floyd, which will be followed by the verdict, and potential sentencing of Mr. Chauvin. Additionally, America is reeling from the recent deaths of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo at the hands of local police. Further, next month will mark the one-year remembrance of Mr. Floyd’s death. Any one of these incidents hold the potential for civil unrest and corporate strife. Taken together, concern increases exponentially and organizations must be prepared to support their clients, employees and communities.
In this Page Conversation on Wednesday, April 21, at 3 p.m. ET, Page Chair Charlene Wheeless will lead a discussion with Becky Edwards of ACLU and Stacey Jones of Accenture to explore how organizations are navigating their internal and external communication responses and how to best support employees during this time.
