Hate Has No Place Here: Creating a Welcoming Environment in Your Business
Wed, Apr 26, 2017 at 5:30pm
Hosted by Stay Local!
“Hate Has No Place Here” is a panel discussion designed to give New Orleans business owners the tools to create a welcoming environment in their business and community. Businesses owners are leaders whose actions to demonstrate solidarity for and acceptance of people of all walks of life extend beyond the walls of their business to the community.
The panel brings together lawyers, equity experts, and local business owners to share their experiences and knowledge. The goal of the event is to teach New Orleans businesses how to respond to issues of racism, discrimination, and hate speech in their business to ensure all people feel safe, valued, and wanted.
Beverages and light bites will be served.
