During this year’s Black History Month, we had an overwhelming reminder that talent of color should be celebrated more often throughout the year and that initiatives should extend beyond just one month. While it’s great to go above and beyond for a month, the only way we’ll see change is by ensuring we actually listen to people’s perspectives and institute change from the top down instead of the bottom up.
