How To Make Sure Black Lives Really Matter “The Uprising”

Harriot is the senior writer at The Root and a frequent guest of MSNBC and CNN, and Jordan is an African and African American historian. Harriot, Jordan, Bronner Helm, and Jeffries Warfield will discuss the impact of the tens of millions of people who have taken to the streets of nearly 550 cities to declare that “Black Lives Matter,” and unpack what Black Lives Matter really means and what it looks like. The panelists will also discuss their contributions to the new issue of YES! Magazine and answer questions from attendees.

Available now, the Black Lives issue of YES! Magazine is a collaboration between YES! and Colorlines. Edited by Jeffries Warfield and Bronner Helm, it features, along with Harriot and Jordan, more than 20 Black journalists, historians, policymakers, researchers, artists, and photographers who imagine a world in which public safety does not require racist and violent policing, where there are no racial inequities in health care, and the debts owed by this nation for Black labor are paid.

Live Stream Event: Inspiring Emotional Commitment from Employees and Customers with Keith Alper

From Like to Love

Most companies know that winning customers is key. But many don’t realize that loyalty starts from the inside, with employees. To build a brand that truly motivates, they must take their employees from liking their jobs to loving them.

As CEO of CPG Agency (A Nitrous Effect agency), which specializes in corporate and employee engagement, Keith Alper has seen the competitive edge gained by creating a culture that turns employees into brand advocates. In From Like to Love, he draws on real-life examples to present his proven process for turning any organization from appreciated to adored, including:

* Keeping a finger on the “pulse” of satisfaction

* Creating an engaged workforce

* Building open communication and trust

* Creating a competitive advantage with love

* And more

The smallest shift can make a huge difference, making team members happier, more able to create value, and likely to be retained longer, impacting your bottom line.
