    Diversity Program

    Join us for our June 2016 Monthly Program on Diversity in the Workplace. 

    Our speaker will discuss the evolution of diversity beyond mere compliance, to activation through engagement and the creation of inclusive and equitable environments.  The presentation will focus specifically on Millennials: how do they view diversity and inclusion, the impact of diversity and inclusion considerations on this population, and resulting workforce and workplace considerations.
