Allyship

Allyship

ACE NextGen’s Allyship initiative was founded in June 2020 when it was abundantly clear that stronger partnerships must be forged for communities of colors to stand together in the face of adversity, such as racial tensions, social injustice, economic downturns, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting in August, we are providing events centered on building diversity, equity, and inclusivity to fulfill the principles laid out in our DEI statement.
