The Canadian Council of Business Leaders Against Anti-Black Systemic Racism today announced its Board of Directors and its Committee Chairs.
"The announcement of the BlackNorth Initiative's Board of Directors and Committee Chairs is again borrowing business best practices - creating a governance structure that is built for success," said Wes Hall, Founder and Chairman of the Canadian Council of Business Leaders Against Anti-Black Systemic Racism. "I am extremely proud to see the extent to which leaders across Canada are committing their time to end anti-Black systemic racism."
The BlackNorth Initiative's Board of Directors was purposefully created to reflect the rich cultural mosaic of Canada to be a dynamic and diverse governance body - one with the depth, breadth and reach needed to create the right policies and oversight needed to sustain the organization's drive towards dismantling anti-Black systemic racism.
