WHAT IS REEM?
The Racial Equity and Economic Mobility (REEM) Commission was formed in the summer of 2020 to convene around matters of racial inequities, social justice, and disparities in key areas that negatively impact the Black community in Greenville County.

Special Guest Speaker:
John Simpkins, President of MDC
“Equity-centered leadership is rooted in the person. It is rooted in human dignity. As we’re thinking about what it means to be a leader, we should upend the notion of who is a leader, who is capable of leading, and what it means to exercise leadership. Leaders at their core are learners, and good leaders must be lifelong learners. So the question for me becomes, 'How do we cultivate in leaders a comfort with learning in public and sharing power and information?'”
