June 30th 2020: Speaking up for a Better World
Rochelle joins Keynote for Global Online Diversity Summit
Rochelle spoke at her first keynote event, Speaking Up For A Better World, an all-day global summit from KeyNote Women Speakers, featuring voices from all over the world speaking about their experiences and expertise on racism, bias, equity, and social justice with the intention of bringing people together and fostering inclusion at all levels. This event was motivated by the worldwide outrage following the atrocious video of a police officer murdering George Floyd, which sparked an urgent call to action for Black Lives Matter, anti-racism and an overhaul of how the world sees and treats black people. This has also sparked a worldwide call for more humanity in society, as citizens speak out on their countries’ own versions of deeply ingrained oppression and inequity.
At this event, Rochelle spoke about the need for Authenticity when Challenging Racism at Work, and shared her expertise on why typical Diversity and Inclusion tools don't work to reduce bias and discrimination. She also shared her experiences of racism inside and outside of the workplace.
