Bloomberg Holds Conversation About Race and Its Role in the Workforce With Employees

For 90 minutes on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, Mrs. Harriet R. Michel, noted public policy expert on civil rights and race relations, did just that with more than 5,000 of Bloomberg’s employees – over a quarter of the company’s global workforce. During a virtual conversation about racial injustice, Mrs. Michel shared her perspective on how far Black Americans and our wider society have come since her marching on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement in Birmingham, Alabama, during Bloody Sunday in 1965, as well as the state of affairs in today’s current environment.
