Firm Holds Monthly DEI Awareness Event on the Emancipation Proclamation


Bassford Remele continued its monthly “DEI Awareness Event” initiative that promotes awareness of diverse cultures and perspectives. The program highlights ways the firm can support the community through cultural awareness. In addition to discussing timely topics, food is catered through local minority-owned businesses.

A Bassford DEI Team led a firm luncheon and discussion about the Emancipation Proclamation. As part of the Firm’s initiative to support minority-owned businesses, attendees also enjoyed lunch from Soul Bowl. Soul Bowl was born in November 2017 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Brittney and Gerard Klass wanted to use soul food to change the narrative of North Minneapolis by bringing people together to celebrate the North Minneapolis culture and community. Soul Bowl is soul food reimagined for the urban millennial by Chef Gerard Klass. By using unique flavors and modern techniques, he presents the soul food from his childhood in a flavorful, healthy, and eye-catching way.
