To celebrate Black History Month, we sat down with Noble’s Director of Equity, Inclusion and Diversity, D. Nigel Green and Anti-racism trainer and facilitator and founder of Overcoming Racism, Matthew Kincaid to discuss anti-racism, Noble’s work to become an antiracist organization, and the path forward.
When asked about his thoughts on Noble’s Anti-racism Commitment, Mr. Kincaid responded that when he logged into the Noble kick-off event and heard our CEO’s speech and some of the other panelists, “I cried”. “It was a reminder to me that change can happen when people put justice over comfort when they put progress over fear when we put children over ourselves,” he expressed.
