Atlas Lab Principal, Kimberly Garza, together with Diana Fernandez, Andrew Sargeant, Jose de Jesus Leal and Kona Gray, deliver a powerful keynote on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, to share a collective acknowledgement of racism in the profession and examine what it is like to navigate the profession as people of color, culminating in a unified expression of hope for change and growth in the profession.
