This free virtual program was the first time FindSpark hosted an event meant for all members of our community — students, professionals, employers, talent professionals, and higher education professionals. This conversation will be most useful when heard by all parties to better understand the challenges faced by Black professionals in the workplace, and how anyone in any role can be a part of positive change. We want to take advantage of the fact that FindSpark can connect folks from all pieces of the workplace puzzle — to not just listen but to act.
