Over the past week, we’ve hosted some important discussions on Up To Speed. Today, we’re going to take a break from talking to allow time to reflect on everything that’s going on right now.

We know a lot of you will be tuning to watch the George Floyd funeral and related events. His death has sparked a movement in the nation and the world. His service, which will be live-streamed, will include a call to justice, and social reform.

If you’re wondering how you can play a role, learn from Diversity and Inclusion expert Willie Jackson on how to be an accomplice, rather than just an ally, for racial equality.

In addition, here’s a toolkit with resources to help you start a conversation on race.

You can also watch our panel discussion moderated by Hans on race, equality and justice.
