Making Black Lives Matter in Boston & Beyond: A Conversation with Leader, Activist, and Changemaker Paul Francisco

Feb 18 • 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Throughout the summer of 2020, our news stations covered daily protests and demonstrations of racial injustices. In an already tumultuous time of change for employers addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, they were pressed to address the ongoing racial pandemic within their own organizations. Across the workforce, diversity and inclusion became top words for hiring practices, but many wonder what does that actually mean, especially if you are BIPOC?

Paul Francisco, Chief Diversity Officer and Head of Workforce Development Programs at State Street Corporation, have worked tirelessly to bring diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies in not only his workplace but in his communities. From co-organizing a silent protest of Black executives in front of Faneuil Hall to launching the New Commonwealth Racial Equity and Social Justice Fund with The Boston Foundation, Paul’s mission is to breakdown racial and systemic barriers for all.

Join us for this exclusive and empowering interview with Paul Francisco by Northeastern University Law School student Tai-Lyn Parboosingh, L’22, on making change for racial justice in your workplace and communities.
