Harvard Business School Launches Action Plan for Racial Equity

Meghann Showers


Harvard Business School – long critiqued for its lack of minority representation – launched an action plan for racial equity on Sept. 23, as universities across the country engage in an ongoing national reckoning with racism.

“The horrifying murder of George Floyd, and an all too long history of similar injustices, has spurred our collective awakening to the grave and continuing systemic racism in the United States that creates unacceptable, even dire inequities for our Black community members,” wrote Harvard Business School Dean Dr. Nitin Nohria in a statement. “This moment has made urgently clear that the School must redouble its commitment to combat racism—and anti-Black racism in particular—to create meaningful and enduring change that will enable every member of our community to thrive.”

In July, a taskforce of 25 staff, alumni and students came together to create a seven-layered plan. In it, the school

Adept Marketing, one of central Ohio’s top digital marketing agencies, is proud to announce the launch of Upright, the first public relations agency dedicated to maximizing trust: the currency of the next decade. Trust impacts the entire consumer journey. Upright strategically targets each stage through a proprietary mix of traditional public relations, digital public relations and digital marketing channels.

“During the last decade, brands built responsive websites, placed content on social media, and ‘related to the public’ to acquire customers. That’s all well and good. But the way people make buying decisions has changed, and most brands haven’t changed with it,” said Justin Spring, co-founder of Upright and Adept Marketing. “Satisfying a customer isn’t enough to earn loyalty and growth. People need trust signals that validate their buying decisions. Without these signals, a brand can’t compete.”

Most public relations agencies focus on storytelling. Upright focuses on building trust above all

Oracle has entered the multi-cloud and hybrid management and monitoring fray in what has become a crowded market.

The company launched the Oracle Cloud Observability and Management Platform, which is a suite of management, diagnostic and analytics tools to manage multiple clouds and on-premise environments.
