Let's Talk About Racism


Please be advised that offensive language is briefly used in an original instructional video used as part of this presentation. DECA and Intuit do not support these views or this language. | Racism is something we live with every day, but because it is so complex, nuanced and personal, we struggle to engage in meaningful and productive discussions. In this session, Charisse Daggs, a leader in diversity, equity and inclusion provides a useful framework to make the conversation on racism approachable and actionable.
