More than ever Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) "think tanks" are needed to grow and expand inside of corporate and nonprofit organizations. It's the smart way to capacity build for cross cultural understanding no matter how large or small the enterprise. They are doing just that at May Institute, a leading national organization for Autism.
Roundtable Speakers Julia Burgess and Jenitza Camacho will walk us through the D&I system established at May Institute to help you determine the best course of action for your organization. Come here "Building A D&I Initiative Inside Your Organization" at the November 1st Multicultural Conference. You'll leave with new knowledge and a better understanding of how our cultural connections matter more than ever.
