Black History Month 2023
Black History Month was created to challenge racism and to celebrate black culture and the lives of black people who have done remarkable things for all around the world. It has since grown into a national event that is celebrated annually throughout the month of October.
This years theme is: Celebrating our Sisters, Saluting our Sisters, and Honouring Matriarchs of Movements.
Black History Month is an annual celebration that draws attention to the vital need for representation, identity, equality and diversity in the workplace, schools and everyday life. Our Black History Month speakers draw on their powerful stories, experiences and insights to schools, colleges and universities and put on classes to teach Black History while businesses often hold events used to educate themselves and employees to help improve equality and inclusivity across their businesses.
One of the best ways to celebrate Black History Month is by inviting experts to come your business and speak to your employees.
We have championed just a few of our black history month speakers below…
