OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Kevin Stitt is hosting a second roundtable discussion on race with Oklahoma community leaders, according to a news release by the governor's office.

The event is set to take place at 7 p.m. tonight on Gov. Stitt’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

Topics of discussion will include programs to support minority businesses, challenges minority businesses currently face, the need to improve access to mentorships and career exposure and other personal experiences from the panelists, the release said.

As I mentioned in our first roundtable, I wanted to continue the conversation and focus on economic development challenges and opportunities in minority and underserved communities. Oklahoma is better when we work together, and I encourage Oklahomans to lean in and listen to the stories and ideas from tonight’s panel.
