Session Description

Reaching out to people who may be different than yourself can be a bit intimidating, but this is a necessary skill for business and organizational leadership. This engaging workshop highlighted how to recruit, partner and invest in diverse communities. Participants were led in “safe space” discussions and in role playing exercises to help them gain the confidence needed to engage authentically with under-tapped and under-represented audiences.
