Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) continues to be a high-ranking concern for HR professionals. Our diverse panel of experts will address the following questions:

  • What is the value of Diversity & Inclusion to your organization?

  • What are employers missing when they overlook…or do not look at all, for certain demographics?

  • How can an employer diversify its workforce and make those workers feel included as an integral part of the organizational culture?

  • What barriers exist that may discourage someone from applying for job posting?

  • What are some internal or organizational obstacles to implementing D&I initiatives?

About our Panel:

Amar Patel is the CEO for Brevard Achievement Center. He will discuss his experiences as an employer, mentor and a placement provider for those with physical and mental limitations.

Donna Thrash, a Certified Career Coach and Mental Health Counselor will offer insight on the aging workforce.
