DIVERSITY SUMMIT: WELCOME EVENT, KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DAVID JOHNS (EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE WHITE HOUSE INITIATIVE ON EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS)
Having the opportunity to organize, plan, and execute two internal company identity-based diversity, equity, and inclusion conferences was a powerful experience. Approximately 225 staff members engaged the first year. The second year (in which David's keynote was featured), nearly 500 staff members engaged.
Both internal and external leaders in the Black community were featured throughout nearly a week of programming to internally support, develop, and further Black staff members within this company.
