PTCMW Message: June 5, 2020
PTCMW Members and Friends,
As we continue to confront the history of racial discrimination and inequality in our country, there is an even greater necessity to be in solidarity with those burdened and take action to break down institutionalized barriers. With this, PTCMW stands with our Black members and the Black community at large.
Our profession affords us the opportunity to have a meaningful impact related to discrimination and inequality. We have a responsibility as professionals, and as human beings, to continue to advance our research understanding of and improve practices that promote fair, equitable, and safe work environments for persons of color.
If you have ideas and suggestions for PTCMW activities, or research to share with the broader membership, please let us know. PTCMW seeks to provide opportunities to learn, share, and grow to improve racial equality and to stand up against racial injustices in the workplace and beyond.

Update to PTCMW Members
The PTCMW Board has been monitoring the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization's statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from those agencies, as well as local health departments.
The well-being of our members is paramount; therefore, we are postponing all upcoming events until we can be assured it is safe to continue.
The PTCMW board is looking into alternative ways to continue to provide you with educational and networking opportunities - even as we continue to practice social distancing. This is a challenging time for all of us; thank you for your patience as we navigate our path forward.
We will provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
