UnTabled is an opportunity for businesses and professionals to gather in conversations that link education, youth development, and the workplace. The evening will bring together Nashville’s established and emerging business leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, and change makers in a virtual setting where they can connect with each other and learn about ways to support Southern Word’s placement of mentors inside classrooms and community organizations.

In the wake of the George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery killings, the music industry demonstrated support through black-out Tuesday when their social media channels went silent. Now music and other businesses executives are asking what next. How do businesses create a sustained plan for equity and inclusion that shifts the nature of their workplace and surrounding communities?

Join Southern Word, Tony Abner (Vice President of Business & Legal Affairs), Kendrick Robinson (Diversity & Inclusion at Bridgestone Americas), John Cantu (Manager of Corporate Marketing at Anthem Entertainment), Jon Romero (Head of Marketing at Vector Management), and Nathan Thompson (President at Nashville Filmmakers Guild) in a discussion about how we can build on this increased awareness around our diversity shortcomings. The conversation will be facilitated by Southern Word board chair and founder of Tea, Tea & Company Janet Walsh.

As a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to engage attendees in an intimate and creative setting. If you are a Title Sponsor, we will also work with you to ensure that your organization has a special opportunity to share your mission and message with all attendees. The event is free for attendees, but we will be asking for donations.
