TOMORROW, 8 - 9:15 p.m. ET: Volunteer Day of Understanding

Please register by Monday, June 14.

We hope you can join us for the final session of the Volunteer Impact Series. This series highlights how volunteers can make an impact on the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

The Volunteer Day of Understanding on Tuesday, June 15, will be a moderated panel discussion with volunteer leaders to examine the organization's role in addressing systemic racism and creating and sustaining an organizational culture that centers on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This will be the first-time volunteers will be able to participate in a Day of Understanding.

This session will run from 8-9:15 p.m. ET. We've also dedicated time during the virtual event for our panelists to answer your questions. Here is the agenda:

  • Opening Remarks
  • Video Presentation
  • Panel Discussion
    • Dr. Rick Ngo, surgeon, ACS CAN Board member, Houston, TX
    • Kira Sano, RFL event lead, student at University of Southern California, San Francisco, CA
    • Kier Matthews, development & account management leader, ACS Area Board member, Seattle, WA
    • Dr. Omar Rashid, oncologist, ACS Area Board member, Orlando, FL
    • Carlos Velasco, Latino community facilitator and consultant, Phoenix, AZ
  • Call to Action

Volunteers must register to participate by Monday, June 14. If you registered prior to the first session on April 20 or the second session on May 11, you do not need to register again. A link to join the session will be emailed to you at the email address provided prior to the session.

You are encouraged to invite other dedicated volunteers to join this important discussion.
