BLACK HISTORY MONTH
February marks Black History Month, an annual observance honoring the often-overlooked accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history. Celebrating Black History Month in the workplace can be important to building psychological safety and employee engagement among all employees. TDM’s Jackie Ferguson created this guide providing us with some tips and ideas for creating Black History Month programming for our association.

People of Asian and Pacific Island heritage have long enriched the U.S.’s culture, yet there is a long, deep trauma enacted on AAPI people, and a resurgence of explicitly racist behaviors in the past year. We encourage you to continue dialogues about these issues and celebrate AAPI Heritage Month at work in order to build psychological safety and boost employee engagement. View programming guide here.
September kicked off Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month during which we honor the “histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
