From Diversity and Inclusion to Racial Equity
Beyond The 8:46 Series
It will take a sustained, collective effort across all sectors of our society to create real change.
The 8:46 Series* originally launched in August 2020, educating 900 community members on systemic racism and its impact on our society. The 8:46 Series returns in 2021 with additional topics to educate our community.
Hosted by the NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad and the YMCA of Greensboro.

What are the best ways to get started embedding equity into your organization? In this workshop, Ericka Hines, Principal of Every Level Leadership, will walk participants through a framework for use and the key steps to getting started.
In January 2021, we hosted a 90-minute panel discussion that explored diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace. Check out a recording of this event by clicking here.

*Note: In 2020, we named The 8:46 Series for the eight minutes and forty-six second period when the officer’s knee was on George Floyd’s neck. As we have since learned, the officer’s knee was in fact pressed against Floyd’s neck for over 9 minutes.
