Diversity & Inclusion Workshop Series: Cultivating a Diverse Workforce
At a time when we continue to foster economic growth in our business community, it is increasingly crucial to recruit and retain diverse talent in our city and region. There are many layers to the recruitment and retention of talent and successful businesses develop a comprehensive action plan as a part of their overall DEI strategy.
Join Nicole Jacobs-Silvey, President and Founder of Connection Coach KC, for a look at a series of topics related to leadership development and talent cultivation. We will discuss data regarding leaders of color, identify how to create a pipeline of candidates, and explore the strategies for creating a culture of belonging that is rooted in both equity and inclusion.
This event is being presented in partnership with the Blue Springs Chamber of Commerce.
