This February, Epitec is excited to announce the launch of our book club to celebrate the contributions of African Americans to our society; spearheaded by our DEI Council Program.
We’re thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity to our employees and to celebrate Black History Month in a meaningful way. We hope that by engaging in these conversations, we can foster a greater understanding of the African American experience and create a more inclusive workplace. With these intentions in mind, we’ve decided to read Kindred by Octavia E. Butler.
“Author Octavia E. Butler skillfully juxtaposes the serious issues of slavery, human rights, and racial prejudice with an exciting science-fiction, romance, and historical adventure.” (octaviabutler.com)
If you would like to participate in the book club, please complete the form below. Those who register will also be invited to attend a virtual discussion about the book on February 24th at 12 PM EST. A link to attend that meeting will be sent later this month.
