Active Listening that Leads to Understanding: Driving Equity and Action

By: Crystal Berger & Fylí

Merriam-Webster defines Equity as: justice according to natural law or right specifically: freedom from bias or favoritism.

It’s been 4 months since the murder of George Floyd and roughly 6 months since the start of the pandemic in the US and with the recent ruling on Breonna Taylor’s murder, it has become painfully clear that within our society the same rules do not apply to all. In this session of Active Listening that Leads to Understanding we will explore how the disruption we as a society have experienced is affecting the corporate brand space, politics and how our media is covering it.
