Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit

Companies who have greater workforce diversity outperform their competitors. In today’s competitive arena, successful companies capitalize on diversity and inclusion as a source of competitive advantage. The workforce comes from different backgrounds, skills and aptitudes. Far from being a challenge, diversity can increase innovation, acceptance and problem-solving capacity.

Join the Grand Rapids Chamber for the 2019 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit. Learn best practices from top companies in our region receiving recognition for their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Dr. Jesse M. Bernal, Vice President for Inclusion & Equity at Grand Valley State University, will serve as the event emcee.
