New this year, we will have an employer panel discussing the opportunities and challenges when hiring a diverse workforce. During the conference, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss workplace scenarios related to the conference topics. The goal is to help participants gain practical tools and resources that will improve the quality of service and ultimately create a diverse and inclusive workplace for both employees and clients. Overall, the conference will provide a great space for learning, sharing ideas, and helping combat stereotypes and biases.
We will also have booths with information and resources for participants to take home, fantastic door prizes, and live entertainment during lunch. The ticket price includes admission to the one-day conference, free continental breakfast, and a delicious lunch.
