Over the last few weeks, we have received some questions about BCA’s Equity Movement. To clarify, the current goal of our Equity Movement is very simple: To better understand the issues of inequity and how they impact our organization and our companies.
In October of 2020, along with 9 BCA Members (formally called the Equity Transformation Team), we set out on a journey to Listen & Learn. Pledging to dive in and gain a better understanding of the many issues of inequity that exist. We remain focused on the goal stated above, and can report that, through our Listen and Learn sessions, we are certainly getting quite an education. In due time, the Equity Transformation Team will determine what actionable steps we take from here.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about our Equity Movement, we invite you find out for yourself! We encourage every and any member to join a Listen and Learn session, ask questions and find out for yourself what we are up to.
