Zoom chat and Listening Tour recap: What’s coming next for diversity, inclusion and equity.

Tanya Blackmon portrait

Last year, more than 1,000 of you joined Tanya S. Blackmon, executive vice president and chief diversity, inclusion and equity officer, and other facilitators in a listening tour across the coastal region. During these sessions, you courageously shared what diversity, inclusion and equity mean to you. We also celebrated initiatives already in place and identified opportunities that will foster a sustainable culture of diversity, inclusion and equity.


Now, we want to share with you what we heard. Several themes emerged from more than 8,000 comments, and your feedback is supporting the development of a strategic plan for 2022 and beyond. Please join Tanya in this upcoming Zoom chat to continue the conversation. If you would like to share a question before the live event, please email it to Gabriela Francisco.


  1. When: Monday, Jan. 31, noon to 1 p.m.
  2. Details: Zoom information is listed below.

Please note, this is a second session of the Zoom chat hosted Dec. 20, 2021, for team members who were unable to attend at that time. You can access a recording of that session on CapsLive.
