Event Details

Workplace diversity continues to mirror society, and the more aligned on values as well as culture, the more successful these organizations become. It's difficult to sell to customers who don't believe what you believe, on a personal or organizational level. Likewise, the organization's culture can attract or detract the best talent necessary to the company success.

Paying lip service to diversity won't do it, especially if old stereotypes go unchallenged. Join us as we explore affect and effect of perceptions about differences at the institutional and personal level.

YOU MUST REGISTER, in order to attend. There's no fee, and our hosts graciously provide a lite breakfast. Note: Registration is limited to the first 20 signups*, and puts your name on the building security list. Do read the articles in advance and come prepared with your questions for a lively conversation.

Questions or *need to cancel? Please contact the organizer Rachel Kaberon at rkaberon@arkaysolutions.com ASAP and we can give your seat to someone else.
