Blog

As the 2020 presidential election looms during the continued effects of coronavirus, even the act of voting has become a public health risk. That, combined with daily news stories sharing new obstacles to voting (such as slow mail times, removal of mail boxes and the closing of polling stations), has made the topic of voting a major concern for many.

Racial injustice. Gun violence. Police brutality. Transgender rights. White supremacy.

These are not just the issues prominent in the news or around the dinner table, but also in the board room.
