Join us at this interactive event as we discuss the role of diversity in creating stronger communities, a more robust economy, and a healthy environment.
Speakers at the event, ranging from community organizers to academics, will describe how our communities, workplaces, economies and planet benefit from diversity, using real-life examples to show how diverse systems interact to create a stronger whole.
Following the presentations, stay for an interactive, small group discussion that will further examine the ideas of diversity and sustainability.
