Mile High United Way's virtual event series to engage all voices and to co-create more equitable communities.
During each session, we host leaders in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to share their insights into the social justice issues facing communities of color. Courageous Conversations is intended to encourage collective understanding and action and to explore how, as an organization and as individuals, we can work to build greater equity in our community.
As a learning organization, Mile High United Way has been on our own equity and anti-racism journey. We hope you will join our Courageous Conversations to grow your knowledge and join the fight against systemic racism.
Join us as we learn about the history of redlining in Denver and how each of us can work toward eliminating the continued effects of housing discrimination.Register Now
