Black History Month #BeTheChange Challenge
The Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee is excited to invite you to participate in the Black History Month #BeTheChange Challenge. This event also supports the Barney Ford Fellowship Fund for Diversity, a scholarship promoting diversity at Leeds School of Business.
During the daily #BeTheChange Challenge, we will explore articles, podcasts, music, movies, and books on topics including mass incarceration, reconstruction, lethal force in policing, climate justice, arts and the disproportionate impact of COVID on Black businesses. We will also have a self-paced book club reading How to Be an Anti-racist by Ibram X. Kendi.
This event is open to CU students, staff and faculty and to the public.
How the Challenge Works
1. Participate for as many days as you can. We challenge you to complete any 7, 14, or 21 days.
2. Participate individually or as a team.
3. Use a virtual background honoring an influential leader in the Black community or an unarmed victim of lethal force by police.
4. Consider supporting local Black owned businesses.
Please support diversity at Leeds through the Barney Ford Fellowship Fund. The Barney Ford Fellowship Fundraiser and Annual Gala funds a scholarship for diverse Leeds MBA students. Barney L. Ford (1822-1902) was a former slave who became a leading Denver businessman. The Annual Barney Ford Benefit is a way Leeds MBAs collectively maintain a tradition that serves to carry on his legacy.
