Bridgewater Black Network Hosts Harlem Children’s Zone President Geoffrey Canada

Bridgewater's Black Network strives to curate events and experiences designed to shed light on the identity, differences, and untold stories of African Americans at Bridgewater and beyond while also encouraging a sense of understanding and connection among the Bridgewater community. As part of a series of events open to all employees during Black History Month, Bridgewater Founder Ray Dalio interviewed longtime friend Geoffrey Canada — the founder of Harlem Children’s Zone, educator, and social activist featured in the film "Waiting For Superman."

Bridgewater employees were moved by the passion Canada displayed as he shared his own story and that of the many children his organization serves. The discussion was an opportunity to learn more about the work needed to level the playing field for children in America. Canada emphasized a simple truth to the assembled Bridgewater staff: “The most important time in a kid’s life? Today.”
