    There has never been a more relevant time to help organizations succeed in their efforts to strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusion. On October 8, 2019, Kimara Mayberry will join us to highlight the tools and information leaders need to create more diverse, inclusive, and equitable organizations. This presentation will provide a foundational understanding of: baseline definitions; the case for why diversity, equity and inclusion matters; and an introduction to the resources available to move these initiatives forward in your organization. Kimara will also discuss 4 methods your organization can use to overcome unconscious bias to become more collaborative, inclusive and competitive.
