Join Alaant and Take the United Way -
21 Day Equity Challenge

At Alaant we are committed to being in the fight for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We recently participated in the United Way of the Greater Capital Region’s 21 Day Equity Challenge. Every day of this challenge opened our eyes even more to the continuing issues right here in the Capital District and the work that still needs to be done. Strides have been made, but we will continue to forge ahead and be an ally in this fight. 

For more information on the 21 day Equity Challenge check out their website and below are links to the 21 day challenges. There are many great resources here to gain a better understanding of this topic.
