Racial inequities are at the forefront of the biggest civic discussions in Madison, and one frequently mentioned problem under that heading is the scarcity of leaders of color within major organizations. What can we do in Madison to foster more racially diverse leadership?

The Cap Times, working with coworking space 100state, has created an event to examine that question at Madison’s Central Library. Reporter Amber Walker will moderate a discussion panel, whose members are:
• Kaleem Caire, founder and CEO of Achieve64 and One City Early Learning Centers
• Ald. Barbara Harrington-McKinney, who represents District 1 on Madison’s west side
• Sagashus Levingston, founder of Infamous Mothers
• Israel Lopez, business attorney at Neider & Boucher and founder of Chins Up
• Mayra Medrano, president of the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County

The discussion will be followed by brainstorming in breakout sessions to generate actions steps for those who wish to stay.
This Cap Times Talk is free and will start with a meet-and-greet at 6 p.m. The discussion will start at 6:30, and the breakout sessions at 7:30, lasting an hour or so.
