Walking and Talking the Diversity Path


As our country continues to diversify, it is crucial that we understand how equity, diversity, and inclusion impact both our work and our daily lives.  In this session, Martin Garnar will lead a discussion about these concepts and how to infuse them into our organizations.

This will be an interactive event and we’d like to know what YOU want to learn about equity, diversity, and inclusion.  Please send your questions to maroney_bj@yahoo.com by October 31st and we’ll do our best to incorporate those in our discussion.

This is the first part of a two part series.  In January 2019, we will discuss how to broaden our lenses to include a Global Mindset as part two.
