This session is part of a series of gatherings that Steyer hosts. What is a Steyer DEI Chat?
Once a month, we get together online, to examine some aspect of the American experience–either by discussing a video or article, or by inviting guest speakers to talk with us. The goal is to join together in expanding our horizons, as individuals and as a team.
