In response to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, we are in need of innovative initiatives to tackle Systemic Racism, which refers to "the system of structures that have procedures or processes that disadvantage racial minorities and particularly black people" Students this year launched five projects: Minority Leadership, Minority Entrepreneurship, Colorism, Employee Resource Group and Access to Mentorship to address different aspects of the issue and provide concrete suggestions. Each of us can make a difference, but together, we can make a change.
