ABOUT TODAY’S EPISODE
George Floyd was an African-American man who died in police custody. This event, more than any in recent memory, is bringing people of all races together to express their outrage. It appears that this time, there’s actually a chance for change. This was too important a situation to let pass by, so we wanted to address it on this podcast, through the eyes of several prominent African-American leaders in the Cutco/Vector community. Buddy Boyd and Greg Cothran are the highest-ranking African-American leaders in the company, both Division Managers. Kenny Coleman is a key proponent of diversity & inclusion and an expert at bringing people together. This is an informative and encouraging conversation about George Floyd, race relations, and the reasons for hope in the future.

Ultimately, we bring it around to Vector/Cutco, and discuss what the company can do to be a place where people of all sorts are welcomed and encouraged.
Last, each guest shares his reasons for hope in the future.
