What 2017 Will Mean for Diversity & Inclusion

Featured speaker, Sherry Snipes


Join us on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 for the Leadership Series Event, “What 2017 Will Mean for Diversity & Inclusion” with featured speaker, Sherry Snipes, Director, DC Campus, The Iron Yard and Founder & CEO of Global Diversity Collaborative.

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) has increasingly become part of the strategic dialogue at public, private, nonprofit, and government organizations. How has the approach to D&I shifted over time and, more importantly, where is the focus headed in the future? How can you, as an HR leader and/or practitioner, align with the emerging D&I trajectory? What is the business argument for promoting D&I? This session will explore these questions, and other related D&I topics, in an interactive and thought-provoking discussion. A session not to be missed!
