Tampa Bay Tech talks with nonprofits driving equality
The conversation around race is shifting in the United States, according to leaders of four local nonprofit organizations.
Many employers are more willing to have uncomfortable conversations about racial inequity and are beginning to take concrete steps to level the playing field, the nonprofit leaders said during an online discussion Friday presented by Tampa Bay Tech.
Tampa Bay Tech hosted the discussion at the request of members who are committed to driving change and want to learn what they can do to play a role, said Jill St. Thomas, Tampa Bay Tech’s executive director.
Creating opportunities is key, said Tony DiBenedetto, founder of Think Big for Kids, a Tampa nonprofit that helps underprivileged youth discover their untapped potential.
