The artist recently thanked Phillips & Cohen Associates, Ltd. for the company’s continued practice of inclusion:

“As LaFate Gallery Owner, and Award-winning Folk Artist, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to Phillips & Cohen Associates, Ltd. for first welcoming the display of 18 pieces of my Art in celebration of Black History Month, and secondly for purchasing the framed limited edition print, “I RISE.” I was most impressed that you allowed the Employees to participate in the selection of the art piece.”

“As a former Bank Officer, I applaud Phillips & Cohen Associates, Ltd., for its Vision, appreciation of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Other corporations could learn a great lesson from your corporation. I recall the day my Gallery Curator and I completed the hanging of the Exhibits, how engaged your Employees were, asking questions about the various diverse pieces of art. As part of my business activities, I do many Facebook Live videos and whenever I speak on the subjects of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, as it relates to Corporate America, I always applaud Phillips & Cohen Associates, Ltd. as being a beacon of those attributes. The Business Philosophy of LaFate Gallery is “It Takes A Village…TO GROW A BUSINESS,” adapted from the great African Proverb. Thanks to your Company for being a supporter of the “Business Village.” – Eunice LaFate
