Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace and in our Communities: Discover the Trends, the Connections, and How YOU can become a #Gamechanger!

From Supreme Court rulings, to social media usage in our schools, to college students becoming decision makers on who leads a university and who has to go! – diversity and inclusion is something we hear about often and know the benefits of, but when it comes to putting that knowledge into practice are we really taking the steps to make our workplaces and communities  more open, forward thinking and welcoming environment?  It’s likely that we’re not, and even if we are, there are still things we can learn to continue to foster a more inclusive workplace and world for the betterment of everyone.

With one in every three employees now being a part of the Millennials and with Baby Boomers preparing for a mass exodus within the next few years, we will explore the Diversity & Inclusion (D & I) trends that are steadily pushing on the seams of many organizations causing paralysis to workflow processes and seeping into communities.  We will discuss alternatives that challenge status quo in a healthy way while producing an attractive work culture and work product.

Join us for an engaging presentation by Kelley Cornish, MA, CCDP, Director of Diversity & Inclusion at AmeriHealth Caritas followed by an interactive panel discussion where we will touch on strategies for including and supporting various underrepresented groups by gender, race, religion, disability, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
