The 2019 Take on Race Conference brought together leaders in an open dialogue session to brainstorm how corporations can disrupt the typical impacts of racial inequity for people of color.
Charlotte Hawthorne, Director and Global Diversity and Inclusion at Eli Lilly led an open dialogue session at the 2019 Take on Race Conference. The purpose of this ‘group brainstorm’ was to discuss and collect information or ideas derived via “unrestrained and spontaneous participation in discussion.” The session sought to explore new ways for Corporate America to address race. This path brought together a wide range of viewpoints and generated a plethora of ideas. The session facilitated discussions about how to combine, improve, and/or implement the ideas.
