African American lives, homes, and businesses were destroyed in sweeping acts of violence during a 16-hour period in Tulsa, Oklahoma, now known as the “Tulsa Race Massacre,” “Tulsa Race Riot of 1921,” or the destruction of “Black Wall Street.”

The Ongoing Fight for LGBTQ Civil Rights
The riots at New York City’s Stonewall Inn in June 1969 are generally cited as a catalyst for the LGBTQ rights movement, but efforts had been growing steadily during the previous two decades. This was a time in U.S. history when homosexuality was still listed as a mental disorder, and gay behavior was illegal in 49 states. People could be arrested for having a physical relationship with a member of the same sex. The act of wearing clothes resembling the opposite gender was outlawed. In major cities, raids of gay bars were common.

Our story began in 1998, when HBO aired the Academy Award-winning short film “Trevor.” Introduced by Ellen DeGeneres, the film was broadcast alongside the launch of TrevorLifeline, the world’s first 24/7 national lifeline supporting LGBTQ — lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning — young people in need of crisis intervention. The first calls were answered that night.

Diversity Best Practices: Wells Fargo’s D&I Champions Recognition Program
The Wells Fargo D&I Champions Recognition Program was established 10 years ago as a way to recognize team members for the work that they were doing to further the diversity and inclusion agenda at Wells Fargo. Since then, it has grown to recognize six individuals and six groups annually, receiving as many as 250 nominations in a single year. The D&I Champions Recognition Program has become a cornerstone of the D&I team’s efforts to help team members understand what leading inclusively looks like, and to reinforce the behaviors the company would want to see.
