As Project Managers, we need to understand the relevance of Diversity and Inclusion efforts in the workplace and why they are important. Today, many corporations seek a diverse workforce. However, statistics show that a majority of workplaces are far from successfully integrating team members, as we are impacted by our own biases.

Attend this presentation to gain a better understanding of Diversity and Inclusion, and gain a deeper understanding of how they are important in the workplace!
