We'd like to celebrate Black History Month by spotlighting our Black Doximity employees. This week, we interviewed Raven Carr, Marketing Analyst, Rx Marketing, from New Orleans, Louisiana.
What does Black History Month mean to you?
Black History Month is a time to acknowledge and honor my rich culture and history and to appreciate the influence that Black people have had on the USA as well as the rest of the world.
What does workplace allyship look like to you?
Being an ally in the workplace is acknowledging any privileges that you hold in a certain space and doing your part to foster an environment that makes people feel safe and welcome.
How does Black History influence your professional or work life?
My history is a great source of encouragement. I am reminded of all that they accomplished even in the midst of great obstacles and that I can do the same.
