Tech Talk Live

Tech Talk Live: Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is critical to our workplaces.  It provides companies with differing viewpoints, experiences and perspectives that is only possible by diversifying the employees within organizations.  Diversity goes beyond race and gender to include ethnicity, military services, LGBTQ, rural populations, disabilities and more.

Join us for this session that will feature a panel discussion with area HR and diversity professionals to talk about recruiting and retaining diverse talent.
