Celebrating Black History Month 2024

To honor Black History Month, we’re proud to share some of the inspiring and impactful events that were hosted throughout the month. This year’s theme was “Mapping the Black Experience,” where we took a deeper look into exploring Black Culture and its history through art, food and travel.

Our Black Professional Network co-chairs, Eric Terry, Director, Quality Control and Martika Chappell, People Specialist, focused this year’s theme on what it means to move through the world while Black, aiming for open dialogue and breaking down barriers.

We are opening doors to connect with a broader community of potential allies. Black history carries the weight of profound physical and emotional pain. This year, we directed our focus towards the vibrancy and resilience of our community, offering a welcomed break from those emotional challenges.”

– Eric Terry, Director, Quality Control

“This month, we encouraged teammates to celebrate diversity, promote understanding, and foster a sense of unity by recognizing Black culture through art, food, and travel. Stepping outside of your traditional culture of eating and trying food that highlights Black cuisine are a few of many ways to explore and learn about the abundant cultural contributions of the Black community.”

– Martika Chappell, People Specialist

To carry out the theme, EVERSANA and EVERSANA INTOUCH hosted multiple events during the month including a live-streamed Masterclass “Tracing Your Roots Through Food” featuring Michael Q Twitty, an acclaimed James Beard Award–winning author of The Cooking Gene. This three-part experience allowed participants to learn about and celebrate Black culinary heritage and the cultural significance of traditional recipes, creating a bridge between the past and the present.

This year we also brought back the widely popular Black History Month Coffee Break Speaker Series. EVERSANA and EVERSANA INTOUCH colleagues shared personal stories, their hopes and goals for the future and participated in open discussions about their experiences.

Additionally, Eric led us in a Black History Month trivia event. Participants had the opportunity to test their knowledge and understanding of Black History Month, fostering a sense of community and learning within the organization.

EVERSANA and EVERSANA INTOUCH remain committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity, education, and celebration. We’re inspired to continue engaging in conversations, learning from one another, and celebrating the diversity that makes our organization thrive.
