bWise Special Episode: Driving Change to Dismantle Systemic Racism
Description of this episode
A discussion on workplace diversity and inclusion with bswift President & CEO Sanjiv Anand and Sr. Director of HR Carla Pollard Stewart.
This past year, we have experienced unrest across our country sparked by the senseless loss of George Floyd’s life. At bswift, we have been deeply grieved by this loss and have made it our focus to tackle the issues of systemic racism head on. This has involved taking a very close and honest look at our practices to determine what we can do and how we can change to be even better. Sanjiv and Carla share the steps that bswift, along with our parent company, CVS Health, are taking to ensure this.
