February brought the annual celebration of Black History Month (BHM) worldwide. Companies demonstrated their commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I) in many ways, including highlighting influential and inspirational black colleagues, holding celebratory events and engaging in meaningful conversations through table talks and webinars.
February is Black History Month (BHM)—an annual, month-long observance when the U.S. celebrates and reflects on the contributions Black Americans have made throughout the country’s history.
BHM is an excellent opportunity to build our community, create awareness and engage in conversations that highlight strong leadership and inspire and instill positive aspects of black life. This year’s BHM theme is “African Americans and the Vote,” honoring the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 15th Amendment that granted African American men the right to vote.
