2022 D&I Symposium Presentation: 5.14 Community Response Panel

We recognize that our community is still healing from the atrocity on May 14th, and we could not host any event – especially one addressing DE&I, without acknowledging this travesty. 

We’ve added a special 1 hour opening panel session at 9:30am to allow for an open discussion on where we go from here as a community. 

Moderated by WGRZ-TV’s award winning Reporter/Anchor Claudine Ewing, this panel brings together some of Buffalo’s most recognized community champions to discuss “What’s Next”. This is an opportunity for the advocates working within the community to speak to the private sector about the needs of our East Buffalo community.
