Initiating a dialogue about racism can be challenging. These topics are uncomfortable, but if we want to become better allies, we must acknowledge those who are personally impacted by listening and engaging in unfiltered conversations with an open mind and an open heart. And we must continue this dialog both in the near term and over the long haul. That's how we bring about real and sustainable change. We want to help you get started and offer a pulse on what's happening within Verizon to champion the change we want and need to see. We created this virtual toolkit to provide a foundation for your education, and we will continue to update it with new resources to help us all listen, learn, act and improve.
