Gateway SHRM Evening Meeting: "How To Effectively Connect Across Cultures” & Our SHRM Foundation FUNdraiser!

Wed, May 15 - 5:30pm - 8:30pm

“How To Effectively Connect Across Cultures” To truly make a difference with diversity and inclusion initiatives, it requires focus, investment, and energy. All too often this investment has a very short-term impact without a solid foundation to maintain movement. It is thus imperative for organizations investing in creating inclusive cultures to build a strategy that is framed to be sustainable. Tayo Rockson shares a framework that leaders can implement to foster inclusive environments on the individual, group, systemic and marketplace level.
