OBAP Courageous Conversations Series

Part V | Future Forward: Empowering the Next Generation for Equality

Recorded: Thursday, June 25 | 3 PM EST

Join OBAP for the final installment
in the series featuring leaders from colleges and universities across the US.

During this virtual town hall, we will come together as an aerospace community for a conversation about the "racism pandemic" that is devastating the nation.

The killing of George Floyd and other high-profile violent events targeting African Americans have illustrated the complex constellation of issues facing our nation.

This series of Courageous Conversations will attempt to address these issues head-on, and begin to develop short- and longer-term solutions to eliminating racial injustice within the aerospace industry, and in the communities where we live and work. We welcome ideas, questions, and thoughts as we join forces to create change.
