LISTEN: Connecticut Treasurer Shawn Wooden On The Legacy Of George Floyd
We are marking the one-year anniversary of the killing of George Floyd by Officer Derek Chauvin in Minnesota. The yearlong fallout has often been referred to as a “racial reckoning.” Connecticut State Treasurer Shawn Wooden has been a facilitator of that reckoning -- particularly in corporate America. He joined All Things Considered to talk about the commitments corporate America has made to foster more inclusivity in the aftermath of Floyd’s death. Wooden also responds to a Hartford Courant article that questions his participation in commercials for the Connecticut Higher Education Trust (CHET).
