Diversity from the Employer’s Perspective

This event has been canceled due to inclement weather.

The HR Society is looking forward to hosting Diversity from the Employer’s Perspective. We saw a need to educate students on the importance of diversity, especially in the workplace. Thus we reached out to professionals in the business community in the hopes of having them share how they approach diversity in the workplace. Students are encouraged to ask questions and interact with the speakers. 

This event is part of Adelphi’s Leadership Certificate Program. However, you do not need to be a part of the Leadership Certificate Program to attend this event.
