A Conversation on Race

WILMA's Leadership Accelerator panel talk

Wla 2020 Pp Race

Today we talked with three local leaders about an important topic right now – one about race in our country and community, communicating with each other and what happens next.

This week’s panel discussion was streamed live on WILMA’s Facebook page. To catch up on the talk, we’ve included the video below.
