Capitalizing on Diversity and Inclusion Results

The next meeting of the Commission on Economic Inclusion's Diversity Professionals Group on Wednesday, June 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Baldwin-Wallace University’s Center for Innovation and Growth will focus on how organizations can translate diversity and inclusion (D&I) into better business outcomes. The event is jointly hosted by the Commission and the Cleveland Society of Human Resource Management (CSHRM).

Join us for networking, a continental breakfast and two fast-paced panels of local employers which have been recognized by the Commission in this arena. Breakout sessions will also enable participants to conduct their own organizational self-assessment and plan next steps. Click here to register.
