JP Staff to Begin Series of Listening Sessions with Center for Education Equity
Justine PETERSEN, along with other microfinance organizations nationally, is taking steps for staff members to engage and discuss current events that have brought to the forefront the need for a national discussion and action plan on the salient racial and economic inequities that exist today in our society. JP staff members Randen Click and Shawna Collier are spearheading the listening series which will be led by Anthony Neal, Executive Director of the Center for Education Equity. The listening sessions will provide not only a forum for discussion, but the opportunity for JP staff members to become kinetic in our collective effort to address and take action as it relates to systemic racism and resulting disparities. The listening sessions are part of JP’s commitment to on-going DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) programming.
