    In celebration of Black History Month, February’s roundtable will feature Black leaders in various sectors of global development to share their experiences, discuss the unique challenges they face, and foster a dialogue that encourages greater inclusivity and representation in global development initiatives.

    – DEI Dynamics: Exploring the rise and backlash of diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, initiatives in the United States, and their impact on global development.

    – Promoting Equity: Discussing actionable steps that organizations and donors can take to foster equity, including case studies of successful initiatives.

    – Navigating Race Complexities: Addressing the challenges of U.S.-centric perspectives on race in the context of global development.

    – Empowering Black Leaders: Providing advice for Black professionals and their allies to promote Black leadership and representation in the global development sector.
